Sensory Friendly Trick-or-Treat Event (here at PediaPlex in Southlake!!)
Most importantly, attend the PediaPlex Trick or Treat event! We hope to see you on Thursday, October 24th for our annual Halloween event! We will be continuing to host this event at our Southlake clinic from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. As always, we want you and your kiddos to join us in their Halloween costumes to trick or treat through our clinic! Don’t forget to bring a bag for all of the candy!

State Fair of Texas
Did you know that the State Fair of Texas offers sensory friendly days every week of the fair?! Well, they do! Every Wednesday morning from 10am-1pm they will be offering their sensory friendly experience where they will turn off the bright lights, music, and microphones on the midway. They even have a itinerary with a list of “go-to” activities that will be easy on the eyes and ears for your child. The fair is open September 27th to October 20th.
We hope this has been loads of help! We are determined to help you and your kiddos have a super fun fall! We can’t wait to see you at our Halloween event!
