Autistry Studios Newsletter – October 18, 2009

Posted By on October 18, 2009

The house seemed so quiet this weekend without the Saturday and Sunday workshops!

disneymuseumWe spent Sunday morning at the new Walt Disney Family Museum in the Presidio. It is fabulous. But be prepared for sensory overload. There are several film exhibitions in each room all running simultaneously. This creates a cacophony of competing sounds that can be overwhelming. Add to that the myriad visuals and you get a real whirlwind experience. For those of us with sensory issues I recommend using earplugs and going early in the day when there are fewer people. We were there at 10am and practically had the place to ourselves. The exhibits are amazing and well worth the effort. We came away with lots of ideas!

We did have the College Support and Build Stuff Workshop on Friday. We had a practice Thanksgiving dinner: turkey, candied yams, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and apple/berry pie. We also got a lot of work done – how we did that on such full stomachs I don’t know.

Turkey Time

The following people have volunteered to work the Autistry Studio table at the GGRC Resource Fair on Wednesday October 28th: Steven, Kris, Breton and Corey. Hey, about some girl power here? Sarah, Devon, Phoebe??? I’ll be contacting you all with a rough schedule. Dan and AJ will also be there to help out but you guys did such a wonderful job last time that they’ll probably just wander around!

We are looking forward to seeing everyone back here on the weekend!
