So,Make one,ladies!!!  Lisa,the owner of "Kaitlin's Hideout" is a middle class Mom just like you and me,who had an extremely strong vision and tenacity to get this job done!  

Get your kiddos together for play dates.  Network w/other Autism families.  Do you have a Special needs Rep on your kiddos PTA,or a social worker at school?  All gd resources.  

Here,near Chicago,there are places and activities that make"sensory friendly"special events,maybe in your area too?  I know that"Extreme Trampolines","Monkey Joe's".kid's play places.as well as some movie theatres have special days for "sensory friendly" activities.  Like a movie(1st run) played w/the lights up a bit,the sound down a bit,your own snacks encouraged for kiddos on special diets,and a kiddo having to get up and walk around or melt down is common.

It is nice to get out,often it is hard to do ,and all the kiddos in the family can participate,\

Have fun Mamas!
