"I have just received my Respite Grant check, and I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and generosity.... If it were not for this check (and what amazing timing you had) I may not have been able to put food on the table this week. Times are tough for all of us, and I am surely blessed to have received this grant. Your help has come at a great time of need for us."

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.
