Welcome to Women In Film Las Vegas annual Halloween Haven "Boo Bash" for Sensory Processing Disorder. This year we are celebrating and giving back in a very special way.
Our very own Katie Pfeiffer, who has grown up with SPD, is throwing this fantastic and exclusive event, and we would love to have you join us for a spooktastic time in a sensory-friendly environment, and help us spread the word.
"I want to give back to my community and help kids who have Sensory Processing Disorder like me have the best Halloween ever! I don’t want them to feel left out like I did when I was little or think there’s a limit to achieving your dreams." Katie

Katie and her mom enjoying a concert. "Since I was little, having Sensory Processing Disorder made it so I couldn’t do many things other kids could do. I couldn’t enjoy Disney on Ice, go to restaurants, or go to the movie theaters because it was too much.
My mom gave me a set of headphones that block out a good portion of the noise so I can cope with loud noises, play with friends, and attend events that I normally wouldn’t be able to. Unfortunately, I get mocked and called horrible insults behind my back for wearing my headphones by my peers.
But the mocking hasn’t stopped me, and I live a full life with so much fun, just like so many other kids with my disability do! I’m so blessed to have the best parents and grandparents who encouraged and helped me to succeed.
As a senior in high school, I want people to understand what sensory processing disorder is because it’s not a visible disability. I want to give back to my community and help kids who have Sensory processing disorder like me have the best Halloween ever! I don’t want them to feel left out like I did when I was little or think there’s a limit to achieving your dreams.
Our annual Halloween Haven will be the best time ever (and a safe space) for kids of all ages!
Bring yourself and all your kids to have an amazing time Celebrating Halloween! We have crafts, many types of games, raffles, prizes, and super healthy treats! Maybe don’t tell your kids that last one…
Wear your costumes, and join us for the happiest Halloween ever!
Please help us spread the word, so your friends and family can come to our Halloween Haven, Boo Bash and have a great time too.
If you can’t go, please donate to the cause. Every dollar means another prize for a kid!
Thank you so much! I hope to see you there!" Katie Pfeiffer
