      EVENT DETAILS
      Parents of Children on the Autism Spectrum Share their Experiences at Museums

      Workshop description: Join us for a morning workshop with parents of children who have autism. They will share their experiences of visiting museums and perspectives on what has worked best, and ways that cultural institutions can reach and further engage young people on the autism spectrum and their families.  Workshop attendees and parent panelists will be divided up into small groups and will participate in facilitated discussions about best practices and exchange perspectives and ideas on providing more welcoming experiences to children who have autism and their family members, and how best to market to and connect with those families in meaningful ways.  Museum professionals and parents alike should come prepared to exchange experiences, perspectives, and ideas, with specific examples.  Coffee and donuts will be provided for this morning workshop.
