Wheeling Park, Augusta Levy Learning Center offering stress-free ‘Silent Santa’ experience for those with autism
WHEELING, W.VA. – Visiting Santa can be a sensory overload for children with autism. This holiday season, Wheeling Park and the Augusta Levy Learning Center have joined forces to provide children with autism the opportunity to visit Santa in a calm environment.

The event will enable children and their families to snap a picture with Santa in a stress-free environment, while enjoying holiday treats in Wheeling Park’s Fireplace Room from 5 – 9 p.m. on the following dates:
Friday, Dec. 14
Friday, Dec. 21
In lieu of admission, guests are encouraged to contribute a donation of $10 to the Augusta Levy Learning Center.
