Autism-friendly Easter event planned

Autism BC and the Pacific Autism Family Network are joining forces once again, to host the second annual autism-friendly Easter event.

This event is open to kids aged 0 and up, and will feature Easter-themed crafts, cookie decorating and a special visit from the Easter Bunny himself. The event is designed to be autism-friendly.

It will be held April 5 from 6-7 p.m. at the Pacific Autism Family Network, 1811 Victoria Street.

The Pacific Autism Family Network Prince George Spoke is a sensory-friendly environment, and the event will be free of loud noises, strong smells and other sensory triggers that are frequently bothersome to people with autism.

To help keep the event sensory-friendly, parents are asked to avoid wearing any scented products while attending the event, as it may irritate some of the kids attending. Also, parents are asked to remain with their kids during the event, to ensure their kids have the best experience possible. The event is free to attend, but they ask that you contact Heather Kwitkoski at heatherk@pacificautismfamily.com to advise her of how many kids are coming. This is so that they have an idea of numbers, and can ensure there are sufficient craft and cookie supplies on hand for all the kids.
