A guide to Eureka,the national children's museum based in Halifax UK, for children with Autism and other conditions. (15 pages)

Children with autism and other conditions may be hyper sensitive to sensory input, and there is a lot of sensory input when visiting Eureka!

They thought that knowing what to expect would go a long way towards reducing the stress of a visit, and so they developed the Eureka! story – a practical tool for parents, teachers and children to read before visiting to familiarise themselves with what a visit may entail.

They worked with children from Cliff Hill School to develop The Eureka! Story to ensure that the experience of visiting Eureka! was captured as effectively and clearly as possible, making it a truly collaborative project.
