Sensory Santa 2019  

The holidays can bring many moments of sensory overload for all of us, but especially for those with autism. A trip to the mall or local department store to see Santa can be unnerving.

We’re hoping to take the stress out of seeing Santa. The Autism Society-The Heartland (ASH) is partnering again with Santa America to host a Sensory Friendly “Pictures With Santa” event on Sunday, December 8, 2019.

Parents can sign up for a 15-20 minute appointment so their child can visit Santa stress-free. This will also alleviate the long lines and cut down on the noise and chaos. Photos will be taken in a calm environment, and as a paid- member of ASH, you will receive your photos for FREE.

If needed to communicate with Santa, we have a few resources available including a social story as well as a language board/ icon page.

We want to make each child's visit as special as possible! To do this, we ask that you please send your child's wishlist/Letter to Santa with their first and last name to either our email ashofficemgr15@gmail.com with SANTA LETTER in the subject line, OR please mail your letters to Autism Society the Heartland, P.O. Box 4455, Olathe, KS 66063. If mailing, please mail no later than November 30 to allow enough time to process through USPS.

Pictures will be emailed to the email address you provide in the sign up. Pictures will be sent out within 1-2 weeks.
