Buddy's Big Day

A trip to the city, a concert, and lunch at a restaurant!

(Don't forget to check the Sensory Friendly link above for a state by state list of family outings designed with special needs kids in mind)


Today, Buddy had the chance to experience live music at the Philadelphia Orchestra and also practice his restaurant skills. It took a little preparation, and Buddy did GREAT!


First, Buddy prepared for what it would be like to go to the Philadelphia Orchestra's sensory friendly performance by reading the pre-visit (or social) story the orchestra offers.

Once Buddy arrived at the music hall, Buddy, Dan and Little Dude waited patiently for the music to begin.

Buddy was having so much fun, we decided to go out to lunch at a restaurant after the concert. Buddy watched Going To A Restaurant and he reviewed his visual schedule. Then off to the restaurant!


Buddy's lunch is on the way!

Everyone had a great time and the trip was a success! Hooray!
