The Calm Passion team is very pleased to announce that our third Calmer Con, the only Sensory Friendly Comics &
Pop Culture Convention specifically designed to accommodate the needs of
autistic attendees and those with sensory processing challenges, is
returning to Becker College in Leicester Massachusetts, less than 15 minutes outside of Worcester, on May 30th, 2020! There are two different sessions, Morning and Afternoon, to allow us to accommodate twice as many attendees while staying as sensory appropriate as possible.
We feature several typical comic con elements like costumed guests, artists, vendors, and costume contests. There are also other great activities like block building, face painting, storytelling tutorials, Pokemon GO Tournaments, and a Star Wars Academy. Everything has been designed to remain as sensory neutral as possible for those with autism and sensory processing concerns so families can enjoy an authentic comic convention specifically tailored to their needs. There is also access to our Calmer Space, which is an area where anyone can go if they become overwhelmed or overstimulated to give our guests the chance to relax, recharge, and rejoin the fun when they are ready.
We hope to see you there on May 30th. Please contact us directly with any questions.
