This was posted on my friend Anne's Facebook wall. She is very involved with FEAT, the local autism group. I'm sure she has a Really Important Position but, for the life of me, can't remember what it is! (Sorry Anne!) Anyway, those of you with kids with sensory issues, please support this in hopes that there can be more events like this...
Sensory-friendly showing of the CARS 2 movie this Saturday, July 2, at 10:05am at the RAVE Stonybrook Theater on Hurstborne. They will have the volume down, lights dimmed and we are free to bring our own snacks. Kids are free to move and enjoy themselves! PLEASE pass this along as we need a good turnout in hopes they will see the need and will continue to allow our kids to enjoy going to the movies!

If you haven't seen my post about Barren Heights Christian Retreat, you need to check out their web page. I just checked and there are still openings for weekends for this summer. Barren Heights provides free weekend experiences for families with a child with special needs. The camp is located near Bowling Green KY on Barren River Lake. It's a TON of fun for the whole family! My girls and Sam talk about it all the time and we went last summer. If you have the opportunity, PLEASE take advantage of it. It's a memory-maker! Here's the link to their schedule...

This was just sent to me from a mom of a sweet little boy with Down syndrome. He has a great sign language vocabulary!
“There is an awesome website for ASL, you just type in the word you want the sign for and it shows a video clip of the sign (and the finger spelling, if you want).”
The website is Signing Savvy.
