Kids with autism visit with 'Caring Santa'

Santa welcomes children of all ages and abilities! Autism Speaks is thrilled to have partnered with Cherry Hill Programs again this holiday season to provide sensory-friendly Santa Experiences for families across the country!

Families with children with autism and other special needs enjoyed the time-honored tradition of a visit with Santa, in a more subdued and calm environment. Watch the below video of a Caring Santa event at Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove, NY.
