"The Heatherwood ILC would like to send a big thank you to the ASBC Education Committe for the amazing iPads that we now have in our classroom due to your generous grant. Students are using the iPads in the ILC as well as their general education classrooms to access a wide variety of apps, and have easy access to the Internet for quick information or videos on topics that are being taught. Students are learning to read, write and do math in a very interactive way, and how to regulate their behaviors with Social Stories. Thank you so much for your generous support in helping our amazing students reach their full potential."

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.
