We just put up a new pinboard on Pinterest for things to do in Virginia Beach with kids on the Spectrum. We have several locals contributing ideas for activities, resources, and anything else that would be helpful to the autism community.
There are lots of great things to do in Virginia Beach. We wanted to have a central location for all these ideas. If you'd like to pin to this board, let us know in the comments.
Here are a few of the ideas we featured for Autism Virginia Beach on Pinterest... CONTINUE READING
The South Rosemont Youth Library
The South Rosemont Youth Library is a smaller, more intimate library and tends to be a little more relaxed than some of the other locations in the area. Plus, you don't even have to be from Virginia Beach to visit! (Though, you do have to be a Virginia Beach Resident to check stuff out.)
The Rebuilt Kids Cove Playground at Mt. Trashmore
The new Kids Cove Playground at Mt. Trashmore is a part of Virginia Beach's effort to build playgrounds for "EveryBody". This playground can get a little crowded on weekends and sunny afternoons, but everyone seems to have a good time. The soft landing surfaces and accessibility features make it a great place to visit.
Sensory Friendly Films at AMC Lynnhaven
This monthly event is currently the only one of it's kind. Sensory Friendly Films are available at AMC across the country. The theater skips the previews, turns down the sound, and leaves the lights on. It's a much better experience for many families. We are hoping Cinema Cafe will consider hosting a similar event, click to read that blog post.
