Sensory-Friendly Train Morning
Individuals on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorder and their families are invited to join us for early access to the Museum’s Brandywine Railroad, a holiday favorite featuring O-gauge model trains running on nearly 2,000 feet of track.
Created in conjunction with occupational therapists and local families, this inclusive and accessible program strives to provide a welcoming experience through offering:
- Pre-visit social stories
- Reduced crowding and noise
- A sensory break area
- On-hand support of skilled and friendly volunteers which include occupational therapy graduate students and faculty
- Fidgets and noise-cancelling headphones to borrow
This program welcomes participants of all ages and their families (siblings welcome!).
This event is at capacity. To be added to a waitlist or to request information about future sensory-friendly events, contact Laura Westmoreland at LWestmoreland@brandywine.org or 610-388-8120.
Brandywine welcomes visitors who are on the autism spectrum or have sensory processing disorder and their families by offering accessible programs on certain days as well as providing packs that contain materials to assist in a visit on any day. Learn more
Brandywine’s sensory-friendly programs are made possible through the generous support of the Huston Foundation and CCRES.
