We will discuss how to start the transition process, and when is the best time to start it.  It’s earlier than you think! We will hear presentations from our guest speakers, followed by break away groups.

Seussical, April 22 2016
William Paterson University’s Office of Performing Arts will present another installment of its sensory friendly productions for children on the autism spectrum. In an effort to provide a supportive, autism-friendly environment for audience members, production lights and sounds will be adjusted and various calming areas will be stationed throughout the theater’s lobby, if any guest needs to leave during the performance.  Also, a social narrative packet and study guide will be emailed to teachers once tickets have been reserved. Both shows are 10:00 a.m. matinees, $8 general admission – please reserve tickets in advance.
