Family Science Adventures for Young Children With Autism: My Home, My Habitat

 

Loading Events

Home is where the heart is! Explore different habitats and learn about the plants and animals within them, and how they are all connected. This workshop is designed for young children, ages 3 – 4, with autism spectrum disorder and their parents and siblings.

ASD workshops for kids include a small teacher-to-student ratio as students practice focusing/concentration, social cognition, collaboration/teamwork, listening/comprehension skills and more. Our educators are trained to work with kids with differences.

These free workshops provide opportunities to enjoy family time at the museum in a welcoming, safe and understanding environment, allow parents to network with one another, and help families discover the wonder of science learning together. Materials will include visual schedules, a communication booklet and more.

For more information, call 718-683-9366 or email dmeza@nysci.org
Preregistration is required.

This program is free for families and is made possible through generous support from the Jesse and Joan Kupferberg Foundation.
