Geared toward children with special needs, especially kids
who may have a hard time sitting still or focusing in big groups.
Sensory Storytime is followed by a new playgroup with sensory
activity stations for kids and caregivers to explore together.
These free storytimes, best for ages 2 to 6, are offered on
Tuesdays at 4 p.m. at the Main Library, 834 Lake St. No advanced
registration is required. Sensory Storytimes include stories
and songs as well as large and small movement activities. A picture
schedule is used in the front of the room, and individual
schedules, fidget toys, and bean bag lap weights are available.
Caregivers are required to be in attendance. Sensory Storytimes are
20 to 30 minutes long, and the sensory activities will be open for
30 minutes after the storytime ends. For more information, email
Once a month, Sky High Sports turns off the music and
dials down the distractions for special jumpers. One court remains
especially quiet for kids with sensory disorders who need an extra
peaceful environment. Even children with physical disabilities can
join the fun. A parent can take their child out of the
wheelchair and lay them on the trampoline. Then mom or
dad jumps, gently bouncing their child on the trampoline. Jumps are
held monthly. Jump sessions are scheduled for the first Tuesday of
the month except January, which is held Jan.
