[Source: Disability Scoop]
With Christmas just around the corner, Santa Claus is set to turn down the music and make other adjustments at hundreds of events across the country designed to better accommodate kids with special needs.
More than 550 sensory-friendly Santa experiences will be held this month at malls and other shopping centers from coast to coast.
The events will allow children to visit and have their picture taken with Santa in a more sensitive environment, organizers said, where the lighting will be tweaked, the volume will be lowered and crowds will be limited.
