UMMA is pleased to participate, for the second year, in a program created for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). “My Turn” was developed by the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum to implement accessible and inclusive programming, particularly for families affected by ASD. On Sunday, July 9, UMMA will open exclusively for a sensory friendly program allowing families to enjoy art in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Families will have access to special hands-on activities in the galleries that will help encourage exploration and discovery.
The Museum will offer sensory reducing accessories and a quiet area with tactile toys for families who need to step away from the activities for a bit. This event is recommended for ages 5-18, however all are welcome to participate.
