Touchstone Celebrates the Gift of Autism with Sensitive Santa:
Every year the season’s change and families get together to celebrate Christmas, Hanukah, Winter Solstice, and other holidays—or even nothing at all. These same families’ lives are a hustle and bustle of activity and they often find themselves in some very crowded, noisy and chaotic environments. Children and family members in the Autism Spectrum often have a very difficult time in these situations.
While the rest of the family sits for pictures with Santa, these children can become fearful or agitated and, as a result, miss out on the outing’s celebrations and a day full of fun memories. Touchstone creates a safe environment, full of seasonal activities arts and crafts, music and a “Sensitive Santa,” with photos to remember the day the family shared together.
Your gifts and cash donations help to organize this event for a growing number of children and their siblings.
