Individuals on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorder and their families are invited to join us for early access to the Brandywine River Museum of Art’s Brandywine Railroad, a holiday favorite featuring O-gauge model trains running on nearly 2,000 feet of track. Created in conjunction with local families and occupational therapists, this inclusive and accessible program strives to provide a welcoming experience by offering: pre-visit social stories, reduced crowding and noise, a sensory break area, on-hand support by skilled and friendly volunteers including occupational therapy graduate students and faculty, and fidgets and noise-cancelling headphones which can be borrowed.
This program is open to participants of all ages and their families (siblings welcome!). Space is limited and registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Laura Westmoreland at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610.388.8120.
