As the holiday season quickly approaches, many parents of children with special needs strive to make holiday traditions inclusive and appropriate for their child's needs.  Luckily, they're getting some help with that this year.  Autism Speaks, an organization that advocates for individuals on the autism spectrum, has partnered with Simon Property Group, Inc. and the Noerr Programs Corporation on their Caring Santa program in Simon malls across the country.  This is a private event for children with special needs and their families to meet Santa in a more welcoming and sensory-friendly environment.  On Sunday, December 7, for two hours before the malls open, children who have autism and other special needs will have an opportunity to meet Santa and connect with other children in their area!  Click here to find a participating mall in your area and register for this free event.  Check back with us later this week for more tips on how to have a fun and sensory-friendly holiday season!
