Kansas City ACI Learning Center Offers Free Photos with Santa & Family Activities on Dec. 9, 2017


(OVERLAND PARK, KS Dec. 9, 2017) Sitting on Santa's lap can be a sweet memory for kids, but may not happen at all for children living with autism spectrum disorders, challenging behaviors and other disabilities. That's why the Kansas City ACI Learning Center is offering FREE Photos with “Autism Friendly Santa” as well as fun family activities on Saturday, Dec. 9 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.


"All kids deserve a chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas, and we're excited to offer this free opportunity for families of children with autism spectrum disorders, challenging behaviors and other disabilities who find the typical mall Santa experience upsetting," said Nancy Champlin, Founder of ACI Learning Centers.


The Santa at the Kansas City ACI Learning Center is trained in working with children living with disorders so families can enjoy the event to its fullest. Siblings of children on the spectrum are of course also welcome to visit with Santa!
Kansas City ACI Learning Center is located at 6394 College Blvd., Overland Park, KS 66211


This is a free community event and is designed for children who find the "mall Santa" experience overwhelming and difficult to bear. Apple cider, gluten-free cookies, crafts, and the ACI Learning Center play area and friendly ACI Learning Center Staff and Board Certified Behavior Analysts will help keep children entertained until their photo with Santa. Each family will receive their child/family photos with Santa via e-mail after the event.


Parents are strongly encouraged to register for the event online at https://www.acilearningcenters.com/santa-proof-page/ and select the Kansas City registration link.
