Southcentre Mall is proud to be partnering with Autism Calgary to provide a sensory-friendly Halloween event designed for children with Autism, mobility disabilities, and other special needs. A Special Time for Halloween will be hosted prior to the mall opening for children ages 2 to 12. Families can register for A Special Time for Halloween by calling 403-225-9100 until October 26 at 4pm or until the event is full. Space is limited to the first 150 families who register. Once registered, further info including confirmation of time slot, parking, and check-in info will be provided. Although trick-or-treating is a part of many families’ Halloween traditions, for children with sensory processing difficulties, costumes, darkness, sounds, smells, large crowds, and other traditions can be overwhelming and stressful. With this in mind, Southcentre and Autism Calgary are pleased to offer A Special Time for Halloween, tailored to families and children with Autism, Asperger’s, Cerebral Palsy, and ADHD, free of charge with registration.
