The Discovery Museums in Acton is opening its doors for free to families with children on the autism spectrum this Saturday. With pre-registration, families can enjoy both museums at no charge, giving children on the autism spectrum a unique opportunity to explore the many offerings of the interactive spaces. This event is one of a special series of events called “Especially for Me,” and is part of the museums’ Open Doors Program, which aims to provide opportunities for those who face a variety of barriers to experience the museums’ offerings. Visitors may also drop-in for a workshop with Romy Wilhelm, a practicing music therapist from Indian Hill Music. Many studies have shown that music therapy is an effective tool for reaching this population, as it engages and fosters their capacity for flexibility, creativity, variability, and tolerance of change. Sat., Nov. 23, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Free, but pre-registration is required. The Discovery Museums, 177 Main St., Acton. www.discovery museums.org
