Sensory-Friendly Train Morning

Saturday, January 4, 2020, 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Free
Brandywine Railroad

Individuals on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorder and their families are invited to enjoy early access to the Brandywine River Museum of Art’s Brandywine Railroad, a holiday favorite featuring O-gauge model trains running on nearly 2,000 feet of track.

Created in conjunction with local families and occupational therapists, 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; and fidgets and noise-cancelling headphones to borrow.

This program welcomes participants of all ages and their families (siblings welcome!). Space is limited and registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Laura Westmoreland at lwestmoreland@brandywine.org or 610-388-8120
