"My son was a recipient of the Jack Ferrigno/Send a Kid to Camp grant, and he will get to spend two weeks at summer camp at the Longmont Humane Society. Because of your grant and the generosity of Chef Brett Smith, my son could immerse himself in something that he loves to do and that makes him feel confident and productive. Because of his Asperger’s, he often feels out of tune with other people, but he always feels in harmony with cats and dogs. Thank you for giving that to him. You are an amazing organization. Thank you for all of your efforts, hard work and kindness."

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.
