Autism Family Exploration at the Cincinnati Art Museum is a drop in program where visitors can navigate the museum at their own pace. Specially trained volunteer docents and staff in hands-on learning centers around the museum lead children in sensory activities. Families are welcome to participate or wander the museum at their own pace. The format of this program is meant to be open-ended so families can determine what they are comfortable with during their visit. April is Autism Awareness Month, so we have a special, two-part edition of Museums and Communities News highlighting how sixteen museums serve people with autism spectrum disorder! We'll be sharing these stories for the rest of this month.

We'll be sharing these stories for the rest of this month. Since 2016, Parrish Art Museum has partnered with five community agencies and schools to present Access Parrish, a program for persons with autism and other developmental conditions. Through dozens of activities each year, from in-gallery art activities to a school partnership where students learn skills that applicable to a wide range of jobs, Access Parrish engages over 175 participants with artistic and social interactions in a welcoming environment.
