In October 27, High Road School of Wright City hosted a free Halloween-themed Movie Night featuring a sensory-friendly showing of “Hotel Transylvania” for kids and their families at B&B Theaters in Wentzville.
Aaron O’Neal, the school’s program director, said that 25 people, both students and family members, attended.
“We like to ensure there is more space for people to feel comfortable. Some of the patrons may want to get up, pace around the room, and switch seats.
“During sensory-friendly movies, the lights are left on a little higher. This keeps the contrast of the bright colors on the screen from being so harsh.
High Road School is also planning to offer trainings about disability-specific interventions to behavior in the near future. These training sessions will be open to the public.
