Discovery Museum, Acton: Especially for Me

The Discovery Museum’s Especially for Me (EFM) program series offers 25 free annual events to families with children on the autism spectrum, who are deaf/hard of hearing, or who have a visual impairment. Tailored to the unique needs of these audiences, EFM makes museum visits easier and more rewarding through, multi-sensory experiences for children such as music therapy, nature scavenger hunts, and therapy dog visits. Meanwhile, adults have the opportunity to network with others facing similar challenges. As of October 2018, 95 residents of Arlington had attended an EFM program.
