Louisiana Children's Museum

Sensory Friendly Sundays

 

Sensory Friendly Sundays offer an opportunity for families with children with disabilities or sensory processing differences to explore the museum in a comfortable and accepting setting!

This monthly program is held in partnership with LSU Health Sciences Center’s Occupational Therapy Department.  Representatives from LSU Health and Health Sciences will be on hand to answer questions, deliver activities, and provide resources to parents and families.

Quiet spaces, noise-cancelling headphones, visual schedules and sensory toys are available (limited number, please ask!)

For more information, please contact Amy Kirk at akirk@lcm.org or Grace Abrahams at gabrahams@lcm.org
