In partnership with Pickering Town Centre and Cherry Hill Photo, we will be hosting our 2nd Annual Silent Santa events for families with children with autism. Many families affected by autism do not have the opportunity to have an annual visit with Santa during the holidays due to challenges with sensory processing, anxiety and diffuculty with transitions. This event allows them the chance to visit with Santa without the distractions of the large crowds, mall music, Christmas lights, and movable characters at the set. We have changed our format this year to allow for more spaces for families. Also note we have added a weekday for families who can attend during the week. This is a PA Day. This event will take place before mall hours. There may be a short wait for other families to finish.
Please Note: Time slots are 5 minutes in length. We have reserved some 10 minute time slots during the last hour of the first day. Please leave these slots for families who anticipate will need a longer time for their child to feel comfortable during the visit. We appreciate your understanding.
You will be asked to select a 1/2 hour time slot during the registration process. You will receive an email letting you know exactly when your time slot will be during that time e.g. for 8-8:30am your time slot may be 8am, 8:05am, etc. Note: Due to high demand only one time slot is allowed per family. A $10 fee will be charged on registration but will be refunded on the day of the event. Each family will receive one complimentary print. Additional packages may be purchased at your own cost.
Registration opens on October 30th at 8pm.
Attendees may be photographed by an Autism Ontario approved photographer. Autism Ontario reserves the right to use the attendees’ photograph(s) in any and all of its printed or electronic publications. Attendees may not make monetary claims against Autism Ontario for the use of the photographs.
