Inclusive Weekend Classes - Children's Museum of the Arts
Through February 28, 2013 - SoHo

An opportunity for children with physical disabilities ages 7 and older and their able-bodied siblings or friends to participate in a drop-off art class together. This program is intended to make the museum's art-making accessible to all needs and provide an opportunity for siblings to spend time with each other and with peers who have similar experiences.If a child with a physical disability doesn't have a sibling to attend the session with him or her, the child may bring along a friend instead. Each session offers a new workshop that is designed to meet the needs of the participants. This program is staffed with CMA teaching artists and a licensed occupational therapist(s).?This program is based on a class-like model in which the teaching artists and the OT work to facilitate the group experience, with a keen eye towards the special needs of the participants;?if your child requires dedicated one-on-one attention you should consider bringing a paraprofessional or other adult to help facilitate your child's experience. Parents are encouraged to drop off their children, though they are welcome to stay if they wish or remain close by in another part of the museum. To sign up for a session, discuss your child's needs with the program director in advance of the session. Contact Rachel for more information at [email protected]
