SHOPPING centres across Perth are hosting ‘Sensitive Santa’ sessions for children with softer sensory requirements this festive season.

The sessions usually take place outside of normal retail hours to avoid kids getting overwhelmed by crowds and the general hustle bustle of Christmas shopping.

Children can meet Santa in a friendly, low-stimulus environment and even get their photograph taken.

Sensitive Santa sessions require bookings ahead of time.
