Exploring Sensations

New for 2017!  Smaller classes for more individualized instruction.

Exploring Sensations
 gives participants ages 3-12 opportunities to engage in a variety of sensory experiences at our innovative Multi-Sensory Learning Environment.  This class is for all abilities, as activities are customized to each individual’s unique needs during the session.

This class is led by a licensed Occupational Therapist and is supported by AutismUp Staff trained in facilitating sensory activities for participants.  With the individualized attention we provide, along with the specialized, state-of-the-art equipment, your child has the opportunity for a quality sensory experience at AutismUp.

Classes take place at AutismUp where our Occupational Therapist directs staff and spends individual time with each participant, in addition to, regularly communicating with parents/caregivers.

Each participant is assigned a 1:1 support coach. Class is limited to 4 participants.
