This is a storytime for adults with special needs. Similar to children’s story times, sensory storytime incorporates adaptive story telling, interactive reading, crafts, social stories and more. The story times provide special needs adults access to multi-modal learning and opportunities to develop sensory processing skills needed in everyday life.
For the first time in a decade, the classic children's television show Sesame Street is introducing a new Muppet.
Her name is Julia. She's a shy and winsome 4-year-old, with striking red hair and green eyes. Julia likes to paint and pick flowers. When Julia speaks, she often echoes what she's just heard her friends Abby and Elmo say. Julia has autism.
