At first I was very nervous to take my 11 year old autistic son here. Aside from briefs trips to the grocery store, he doesn't really do well in public places. As soon as we walked in the door, he giggled like a toddler while I filled out paperwork. Once we got inside the center, he was immediately calm and walked straight to the Lego area...making himself at home. Between the black light chalkboard room, art room, swing area, carousel, activity area and cafe...my son was in his own heaven. We were able to stay almost 3 whole hours. During that time, he had no meltdowns, no outbursts, no scripting, no tears. It was just joy. The entire staff was absolutely incredible and engaging. For the first time, I took my son to a place that we were equally at ease. I can't express enough gratitude that this Play Place finally exists.
