Maine Discovery Museum’s special AfterHours programming
for children on the Autism Spectrum and their families.
“My Day to Play” is a free program designed to provide children on the Autism Spectrum with a safe, comfortable environment to explore and to give families who face similar challenges a place to connect. The program was developed by lead volunteer Rosalyn Fisher, a retired occupational therapist experienced in working with children on the spectrum, and MDM’s Director of Education, Trudi Plummer.
