Autism Friendly Cinema Screenings are a very unique service to have that is tailored to suit the needs of children and adults on the Autistic Spectrum. They differ slightly from your regular cinema screenings in the following ways:

  • The lights are raised slightly.
  • The sound is slightly lower.
  • There are no adverts before the film as it goes straight to feature.
  • You will not be asked to remain seated (for those that can’t help but swop seats)
  • You will not be asked to be quiet (for those that want to tell you how much they are enjoying the film)

The whole family is welcome to attend any of these Cinema screenings and some cinemas offer a discounted rate on tickets and nearly all cinemas will accept the use of CEA Cards.

Films coming up in September are:

Odeon Cinema, Bromborough – will be showing Kubo and the 2 Strings on Sunday, 18th September at 11:30am.

Vue Cinema, Birkenhead & Cheshire Oaks – will be showing Top Cat Begins on Sunday, 25th September at 10:00am.

30th September 2016-Sensory Needs Seminar

The sensory needs seminar is for parents and carers who would like more information on the sensory difficulties that their autistic child may be experiencing. It provides parents with an introduction to the sensory systems and sensory processing. It then explores the potential differences in sensory processing that might be experienced by children on the autistic spectrum.

The seminar is for parents and carers of children with autism of all ages.

Will you be a Really Useful Engine? Join our Thomas & Friends themed sponsored walk and get free tickets to Drayton Manor Theme Park!

Perfect for families and Thomas enthusiasts alike, All Aboard for Autism is a short 3k sponsored walk around the perimeter of Drayton Manor Theme Park, home of Thomas Land.

The walk will be marshalled by none other than The Fat Controller, and you can complete a fun Thomas and Friends treasure hunt on your way around!

Anything you can raise to help The National Autistic Society is really appreciated – but as a special thank-you, we’ll give a free ticket to Drayton Manor Theme Park to any adult who raises £25 or more, and any child who raises £20 or more.

Because we know it can be hard for families with children with autism to plan days out, we are proud to say this event is completely autism-friendly.

When you register, we’ll send you a social story outlining what will happen on the day that you can show to your children. On the day, we’ll have sensory toys, games, a bouncy castle and plenty of experienced volunteers on hand. Because almost everyone who comes to All Aboard for Autism is either a family with a child on the spectrum, or an autistic adult, you can relax knowing that everyone around you understands and appreciates autism.

You can sign up here, and create a fundraising page for your family too.
