"I would like to thank you for your support in providing us with a Jack Ferrigno/Send a Kid to Camp grant. Special thanks to Chef Brett Smith and his team at Zolo Southwestern Grill in Boulder. With your generous support, my daughter just had two meaningful summer camp [experiences]. She loved the activities, especially archery, the climbing wall, dancing and swimming. My daughter is still very proud that she had been announced the award twice in front of the whole camp. It is definitely a beautiful memory for her and helped her sequence motor tasks, improve her core strength and coordination, and assist her with sensory regulation. Again, thank you for your kindly support."

Sensory Friendly Films

 

The Autism Society of America and AMC have teamed up to host special Sensory Friendly showings of films one Saturday each month at 10 am at AMC locations nationwide (locally at the AMC Flatirons Crossing and AMC Westminster 24 locations).

It’s a way to bring families affected by autism a special opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. The movie auditoriums have their lights brought up a bit and the sound turned down. Previews and commercials are not played in advance of the movie, and the “Silence is Golden” policy is not enforced.
