Every child deserves to experience the whole of the Holiday season even if they cannot experience all the lights, sounds, and sensations without suffering. That is why Sensitive Santa is touring around the Golden Horseshoe with many chances for a visit.
Sensitive Santa is an opportunity for children who have any form of sensory sensitivity to have a special visit with Santa in a sensory-friendly environment. This means the lights are dimmed, the music is turned off, and there are no line-ups of screaming, crying, or loud people to contend with. So they invite you to bring your camera to take a photo with Santa at one of the times listed below; but please remember that these are often pre-booked meetings and space is limited.
Dates and locations for Brantford & Brant-County are: Sundays in December (December 2, 9 & 16) at the Lynden Park Mall, 84 Lynden Road, Brantford. (Space is limited and pre-registration is required) Sensitive Santa will also be making a trip to Paris on Saturday, December 8 to the Canadian Deafblind Association, Ontario Chapter at 50 Main Street, Paris.
If you would like more information or to register your child for a meeting with Sensitive Santa at either of these locations, please contact the County of Brant Accessibility Coordinator Sheena Yarek by email at email@example.com or by phone at 519.442.1818 ext 3204
