Following the success of our Sensory-Friendly Halloween Party in October, we have decided to host another free community event for families of children with autism in the Blackstone Valley area.

We will be hosting our first Sensory-Friendly Spring Fling on Thursday, April 19th from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm at our Community Day Program and 670 Douglas Street in Uxbridge.  Join us for fun spring-themed sensory activities, gardening projects, adaptive yoga designed especially for kids, musical entertainment featuring drum circles, and more!

Entertainment and drum circles will be provided by Mike Leo Drum Circles and Rhythm-Based Entertainment.  Mike is a great performer with many years of experience working with individuals with disabilities.  He gets everyone involved in making music however they feel comfortable!  He has tons of different percussion instruments available for kids to experiment with.

Adaptive yoga sessions will be held at 4:30, 5:00, and 5:30 with Lisa Irvine, an occupational therapist and certified yoga instructor.  Lisa is also certified through our partnership with Shri Yoga, which provides training to lead evidence-based adaptive classes for many different populations, including children, individuals with developmental disabilities, and individuals with autism and other sensory disorders.

Other activities will be facilitated by Venture’s own experienced clinicians and trained staff members, such as sensory exploration, gardening projects, crafts, and make-your-own snacks.  Kids will also have access to our two state-of-the-art sensory rooms for quiet space if needed.

We hope you’ll be able to join us!  Click here for more information about our Sensory-Friendly Spring Fling.  Please RSVP to Paige Mador at 774-922-1135 or with the number of children and adults attending.
