Family Autism Event

Sunday, October 8

Drumming is fun, and clinicians tell us that drum therapy helps increase engagement, build social skills and reduce stress. This season our family autism event will feature a special musical activity with All Hands Drumming outdoors in The Wild Place (weather permitting). All three floors of the Museum will be open, as always to provide a quieter option for play.

This program is free of charge to all families with kids on the autism spectrum, but pre-registration is required. Call the Museum at 508-230-3789.
