Thanks to a generous donation from Rafi Nova, we have a limited number of sensory friendly masks to offer our families. Rafi Nova partnered with Easter Seals Southern CA to design these. We would like to offer these masks to children and adults who have been having difficulty with the typical masks. Families who receive the masks will be asked to complete an on-line questionnaire to give feedback about the masks. If you are interested in getting a mask for your child, please click request a mask.
