Sensitive Santa

Sensitive Santa makes the visit special for a youngster with ASD and his little brother.

Sensitive Santa is making a return to selected shopping centres.

Every child should have the opportunity to meet Santa and have their photo taken.

Sensitive Santas are trained to communicate with children on the autism spectrum in a sensory-friendly way.

There is no background music, queues or spotlights.

The Sensitive Santa program was created to provide children with autism and their families a special Santa experience in a quiet, stress-free environment.

Sensitive Santa is available this year at Mill Park Library, SPAN Community House, Northland, Highpoint, Stockland The Pines,Chrinside Park and Gateway Plaza.
