    Children learn through exploring the world around them, but that world can sometimes be a little overwhelming, especially for children with disabilities. With this in mind, we're offering a new series of programming, called Senseploration! During Senseploration, we'll present a variety of activities that engage the senses, allowing children to take in new experiences at their own pace. Children with special needs and their families are invited to attend. Registration is required.
