This post is mostly for New Hampshire folks, but anyone can reply. I am possibly working on a project, and your answers to these questions will help inform planners and decision makers.

If you were provided an opportunity for your family to have “sensory friendly” or “medically friendly” access to movies, plays, concerts, or other family activities at a public venue:

1. How often per month would you attend?

2. Would you pay extra for this event? Only go if it were subsidized? Pay only the standard amount?

3. What kinds of accommodations would you require?  Lighting, sound levels, extra intermissions, “teaching moments” from the conductor or director (at a play or concert), backstage visits, extra room in seating, etc.?

I didn’t really want to send out a survey, because I am really interested in your long form answers.  Please email me at gdietz@garydietz.com with “Sensory Friendly” in the subject line, or leave a comment below.
