As you may know, ScribbleMonster does a lot of work with the special needs community. Sometimes we present programs primarily intended for one group or another, but generally, we always want to include everyone who would like to play along. We feel this promotes awareness, community, and understanding. Surprisingly, we have found when we say something like, “all ages and abilities welcome,” it leaves some folks thinking, “Is this show for me?”
We are very excited and appreciative of the Des Plaines Public Library who are allowing us to try something different. This Saturday, we are presenting a “Sensory Pre-Show” performance geared to children who have a hard time in large groups, are on the autism spectrum, or are sensitive to sensory overload. This smaller, selective group will have a chance to warm up and play along with us for a half hour prior to everyone else joining in. If they are comfortable enough to stay and play with us some more, great! If not, we all enjoyed some quality playtime and that’s okay, too.
Please contact us if you would like information about any of our programs or would like to try a Sensory Pre-Show at your event.
Hope to play with you soon!
