In celebration of Autism Awareness Month, the Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) is offering a “Sensory Sensation” movie-night Monday, April 24 at 5:30pm. This event is designed for those with autism or sensory sensitivities.
In addition to the movie, there will also be popcorn, a parent meet and greet, and sensory activities designed to be calming in a fun and engaging way! There is no prior registration required and the event is open to all age groups with sensory sensitivities such as autism, anxiety, physical challenges, etc.
The audience will be free to move around, talk, sing and enjoy the movie as they see fit; parents are encouraged to bring their own snacks for the family and a pillow or blanket to make floor seating more comfortable. Chairs will also be available. Parents are encouraged to mingle with other parents as well as interact with the movie and activities along with their children.
For any questions, Teen Programmer, Michelle Pichon, may be reached at 318-238-9240.
