NYC Movies and shows for kids on the autism spectrum.

Movies and shows for kids on the autism spectrum.

A series of screenings of movies and live performances tailored to the needs of autistic children. I have an autistic son myself and while I applaud AMC's Sensory Screenings I feel that most autistic children do not have sensory problems with the movie theater environment (as long as the sound isn't POUNDING and things aren't PITCH BLACK).

What our children mostly need is a "No Shushing" environment where talking, vocal outbursts and the need to get up and move are respected. I have arranged for the SoHo Gallery for Digital Art, 138 Sullivan St, New York, NY 10012 to donate its screening facilities on Saturday afternoons to this project.
