FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Science Central is using the day to make sure families who have loved ones with disabilities don't miss out on the fun with their Special Abilities Day.
Through support from the AWS Foundation, the program is free for these families.
In order to be inclusive of everyone, they've made special accommodations to have extra staff on hand, a less crowded environment, and additional demonstrations.
"This is a weighted snake that visitors can wear for those that may enjoy the experience of weighted material on them. We also have those listening devices. We have cool gel toy sensory bean bags puzzles, play doh, things that visitors who maybe need a break from the stimulation can kind of play with," school and public programs manager Elyse Faulkner said.
