This Saturday, April 6, BGSU will be hosting a Sensory-Friendly Musicking Experience for children with sensory processing challenges.

This event will include both music-making and an interactive concert, facilitated by undergraduate student Emma Stumpf in cooperation with her faculty advisors Dr. Lisa Martin and Dr. Alicia Mrachko. Various accommodations will be available for event participants, including noise-reducing headphones, fidgets, puzzles, and more!

There will be two sessions, both held in the Conrad in the Wolfe Center on campus. The first session, from noon to 1 p.m., is for students that prefer more guidance and structure. The second session, from 1:15-2:15 p.m., is for students that prefer more independence and exploration.

This event is free and open to all ages, and siblings are invited, as well. Videos and information about all of the day’s activities are available on the website, https://tinyurl.com/sfmusicking.

Pre-registration is required and is also accessed via website. Registration closes at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 5.
