The Traditions of Childhood Series provides opportunities for children with disabilities, their families, and their caregivers to enjoy traditional childhood experiences in a sensory friendly environment. Children with sensory processing disorders and other disabilities often miss out on these important childhood experiences, like pictures with Santa or an Easter egg hunt, because community events are often inaccessible to them and their families. The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project launched Traditions of Childhood in 2012. Over the past 9 years, the Traditions of Childhood Series has served over 5,000 participants with more than fifty events.
Formally hosted at Morgan’s Place, The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project collaborates with different community partners for these unique events each year. Each event celebrates a tradition of childhood that we all grew up with, and that are difficult for a child with disabilities to enjoy in a world that is not able to accommodate their specific challenges, especially for those with mobility and sensory impairments.
In years past we have held events that include Sensory Pictures with Santa, Countdown to Noon Years Eve, Sensory Easter egg hunt, and more! Until we get past the current health crisis surrounding the pandemic we will not be hosting these group events at this time. Once it is safe to resume this program we will post announcements here as well as in our email newsletter, so please be sure to sign up for our mailing list to be the first to know. To participate in our events will require logging into our Family Portal, so be sure to set that up now.
