Especially for Me! Free Evening for Families with Children on the Autism Spectrum

Saturday, August 9, 2014, 5:30 PM

177 Main Street Acton , MA 01720

Both Museums Open

Come
join in all the fun and explore both museums during this special free evening
for families with children on the autism spectrum. Visitors may also drop-in
for a workshop from a practicing music therapist from Indian Hill Music. Many studies
have shown that music therapy is an effective tool for reaching this
population, as it engages and fosters their capacity for flexibility,
creativity, variability, and tolerance of change. Pre-registration required. Visit
bit.ly/Esp4MeAug2014 to register. Food, including gluten free
options, generously provided by Not Your Average Joe’s of Acton. Funded by
