Columbia, South Carolina - The South Carolina State Museum has an Accessibility Morning meet and greet with Esteban, the Pea Green Crayon from Drew Dewalt's The Day the Crayons Came Home children's book on February 11, 2023. This program provides free access for families of children, teenagers, and young adults who would benefit from a sensory-friendly experience and a quieter and calmer setting at the South Carolina State Museum.
Guests who are neurodiverse, autistic, have sensory issues or have other disabilities can experience the museum’s exhibitions at their own pace and enjoy other special activities. South Carolina DDSN will be attending as a program partner to hand out sensory toys and activities for children and provide parents program resources and useful information.
