Kaitlin was transformed into the pages of Dr. Seuss stories, enjoying an accessible and multisensory experience at the Dr. Seuss Experience @experienceseuss in Mississauga.
This was the first time the Cambridge resident attended this activity and she was absolutely thrilled.
It was a valuable experience for her as she was able to interact with many different mediums of art including fuzzy plants at Horton Hears a Who, squishy items at The Cat and the Hat and string lights at the Grinch exhibit.
Kaitlin especially liked the Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? exhibit as she was able to interact with blowing tubes which balanced balls in the air. She was very curious to how the ball was balancing in the air and the feeling of the wind blowing towards her face.
Naomi, Kaitlin’s intervenor, said it was nice that there were different levels to the exhibit, so Kaitlin was able to get on the ground and interact with art and experience and reach for things from her wheelchair.
It can be hard to find activities which are accessible for Kaitlin to attend so the Dr. Seuss Experience was not only easily accessible, but very interactive!
Kaitlin and her team plan to create an Experience Book, using objects and artifacts from the visit, enabling Kaitlin to remember and revert to the Dr. Seuss Experience.
The Dr. Seuss Experience takes each guest on a journey through nine different Dr. Seuss books. Examples include swinging among Truffula Trees from The Lorax, making your way through a balloon-filled maze from Oh, the Places You’ll Go! and strolling through clovers listening for a
Who from Horton Hears a Who!
The Dr. Seuss Experience is open through Jan. 5, 2020. It is located at 199 Rathburn Rd. W., Mississauga, across from Square One Shopping Centre.
