 Explore books and stories in creative ways through interactive activities including math, science, games, and more! In honor of the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s production of Spelling 2-5-5, today’s program will focus on a variety of special needs. Children in attendance will have an interactive, multi-layered experience learning basic American Sign Language from an ASL-certified interpreter. They will also learn about Braille and the blind experience, and we will conclude the program with open stations and some special tools like a wheelchair, visual simulation glasses, and a Beep Ball to explore what it’s like to live with certain disabilities.
