Caring Santa Program: Autistic Children Have A Chance To Meet Santa In A Peaceful Atmosphere
Sitting on Santa's lap is a dream come true for many children. Christmas is a magical holiday that warms the hearts of both children and adults. This day, wonders are bound to happen.
Unfortunately, children with autism may never see their Christmas dream come true — all that noise, crowds, and lights are excruciating for them. Many parents abandon even the thought of bringing their child to see Santa.
This holiday is for families; it is the time of wonders, and everybody should be able to enjoy it. With this thought in mind, the Caring Santa program decided to help all children enjoy the holiday. Organized by Autism Speaks, the campaign paired with the Noerr Program Corporation for the Sensory Friendly Santa. The main idea is to provide the families that have children with special needs with an opportunity to interact with Santa Claus in a peaceful atmosphere.
