Sensory Santa

Posted on: October 31, 2017 11:00 am

Some of you are wondering what a Sensory Santa is.   There are many children who want to meet Santa but have sensory over load when it comes to being at the mall, waiting in a long line, having to deal with loud noises and the whole hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season. 

Sensory Santa is designed for children on the Autism Spectrum and for children with sensory needs.  The event was created to help children who would like to experience Santa in a quite non-threatening environment.

Again this year we will be offering Sensory Santa at our Mt. Orab Child Focus.  The event is scheduled for Saturday December 9th by appointment only.  The families need to register by contacting our Mt. Orab location at 937-444-1613.  Each appointment time will be 20 minutes. The whole family will have the opportunity to meet with Santa when no one else is around. The family will then have the chance to do a sensory friendly craft in one of our group rooms if they desire to do so.   

This event is open to anyone and is free!  Families do not have to be involved with Child Focus to partake in this event.
