Design and build a funky robot using playdough and recycled electronic parts. Hands-on science experiments and sensory-rich projects in workshops specially designed for young children, ages 5 – 7, 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. To register and for more information, call 718-683-9366 or email [email protected]
