Sensory Friendly Activities in the Toledo Area

With a child who is sensitive to loud noises and is easily overstimulated, it can be tough to pick which events to attend. It can be a relief to find some options that have sensory-friendly activities for your little one to enjoy. We put together a list of some of those local activities. Make sure to visit our Inclusive Toledo page at for more resources and listings.
