From the DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM) website:
Third Thursday is a special time once each month when families of children with autism spectrum disorders, visual impairments, and/or mobility impairments come together to enjoy the Museum and take advantage of the many parent and community resources available to them. This program is available the third Thursday of every month, from 5-7 p.m.
DCM is an ideal location for learning. Our exhibits offer ways to work on language development, social skills and purposeful play. Photo books are available to help visitors structure a visit. Families are also invited to play and utilize the augmentative communication devices available at our exhibits.
In addition to the Museum’s exhibits and activities, during Third Thursday DCM’s Community Access Network coordinator provides a resource table offering visitors information, community and parent support resources. DCM is pleased to bring resources and information to its Third Thursday visitors; however the Museum is not endorsing any organization. Families are encouraged to use their own discretion.
Come play with other families! Normal admission prices apply. No registration required. Free to DCM Members. The Museum is open at this time and everyone is welcome!
In addition, with support from Hinsdale Center for the Arts, The Association of Children’s Museums and Very Special Arts (USA), DCM will be testing some new art activities on Third Thursday, for children who have visual or mobility impairments.
