For kids with sensory challenges, a crowded room where you are required to sit and be quiet can be an unpleasant place. This has made traditional theater experiences quite inaccessible for some kids on the autism spectrum, or with sensory integration dysfunction. The Dallas Children's Theater has worked to change that with sensory friendly showings. They leave the lights up, keep the sound a little lower, and have a quiet place to escape to for kids who need a break. They also include some fun interactive activities before and after performances.
