Sensory Inclusive Santa brings a quiet, safe environment for children with sensory sensitivities

HUNSTVILLE, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY WEEKEND) - In October, Payton Walker met with some friends from Madison Behavior Therapy about a fundraiser to bring a Sensory Inclusive Santa to the Tennessee Valley. Well, December is here and Santa is coming!

For many children with special needs and their families, visiting Santa at a busy mall can be overwhelming. That’s why this safe and quiet environment was created.

Families are asked to register for a free ticket to visit Santa, a Registered Behavior Technician, so they can reserve a specific time to have in Santa’s cozy living room without having to wait in a long line with other people. Every child per family will receive a free gift from Santa and fun family photos by a professional photographer to commemorate their special experience.

Sensory Santa will be at the Village of Providence on December 11. To learn more about the event or reserve a spot, click the link provided here.
