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 rrapoport@cmany.org.
