Sensory Storytime

Ages 3 - 6 with a Caregiver.  Sensory Storytime is an interactive program that can be enjoyed by all children, but is especially designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who are sensitive to sensory overload or have other special needs, and those who have difficulty sitting through a traditional storytime.  A parent or caregiver is required to attend with their child.  Participants will enjoy stories, songs, and a variety of sensory activities. Because this is a specialized storytime, registration is required for each session and is limited to 8 children, with priority given to those children for whom this program is designed.

Sensory Storytime will be led by Jessica Horvath, a certified speech-language pathologist.  This program is funded by a grant from The Weller Foundation.

Sensory Storytime

Ages 3 - 6 with a Caregiver.  Sensory Storytime is an interactive program that can be enjoyed by all children, but is especially designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who are sensitive to sensory overload or have other special needs, and those who have difficulty sitting through a traditional storytime.  A parent or caregiver is required to attend with their child.  Participants will enjoy stories, songs, and a variety of sensory activities. Because this is a specialized storytime, registration is required for each session and is limited to 8 children, with priority given to those children for whom this program is designed.

Sensory Storytime will be led by Jessica Horvath, a certified speech-language pathologist.  This program is funded by a grant from The Weller Foundation.
