Okay I know that I usually blog about clinical and research issues concerning kids on the Spectrum, but this was just too nice to pass up. The Theater Development Fund has said that it will present “The Lion King “in an autism friendly presentation on Broadway. The usual visual and auditory stimuli that would be too much for a child with autism will be toned down and a guide for families will be sent out prior to the performance so the child will know what to expect. This will be the first Broadway show in history to play to present a special performance for children with autism. The October 2 matinee tickets will be reduced for the autism audience.
