Good Things.

Don't you just love it when you stumble across wonderful things? Here are a few I've found lately.AYSO soccer sponsors teams for special needs kids! find out more about it here.

This one is so exciting! A family in Syracuse is teaming up with 'unlimited play' to build a special needs playground there. I don't know about you, but I would drive to Syracuse if it meant that MK could play! Click here and check it out. Be sure to watch the video to see what a special needs playground is and all the great features it has.

The last one doesn't have any website or link, but as our family went to a movie last week, I noticed a sign hanging in the theater. The AMC Loews in Layton has a kids movie once a week for guests with sensory issues. The lights are on, and the volume is low. I suppose you could call the theater to find out more about it. I'm thinking they are on Thursday afternoons, but I don't really remember.

So glad good things are happening in the world for our little ones.

We attend the movie; it's once a month, usually a Saturday. Last month was Toy Story, this month was Despicable Me, next month it's an atrocious looking movie called "Cats and Dogs."

I was just going to post the link to the sensory friendly films but Brooke beat me to it!

That link has the list of AMC theaters all over the US that particpate in the program. It's such a wonderful thing!
