Last night, we took Kate to a special event at the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT. In conjunction with the Autism Laboratory in Pfizer’s Neuroscience Research Unit, the Mystic Aquarium hosted a free and private two-hour open house for families with children on the spectrum and/or other special needs. To start the event off, they had a great amphitheater show featuring sea lions which Kate seemed to like a lot. (There may have been other animals featured, but we were 15 minutes late, sorry to say.) Then families were afforded free reign to visit all of the exhibits and interactive displays on the grounds. Kate liked walking inside the exhibit space and standing at the edges of the glowing glass boxes. It’s unclear if she had a favorite fish, but she did seem to pay extra attention to the orange baby clownfish, better known by all parents everywhere as the Nemo fish. It was a nice atmosphere to be in, even for a short time, where no one stared and wondered. Thanks again Pfizer and Mystic Aquarium!
