Do you know a child with autism or another social/communication issue who loves the subway, adventure, mystery, history, and fun? We’d love to share an amazing program with you called “Subway Sleuths” that is taking place this fall for 2nd-5th graders at the Transit Museum.
The Transit Museum is now accepting applications for 2nd – 5th graders for the fall 2016 semester of Subway Sleuths, their acclaimed program for students with autism or other social or communication disorders who love trains, are able to talk to peers about this shared passion, and who can move around with a small group to explore the Transit Museum!
About Subway Sleuths and how to apply:
Sessions are facilitated by a special education teacher, a speech-language pathologist, and a Transit Museum educator (all trained in ASD support).
There will be 10 sessions beginning in September and ending in December. This program is offered on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 4:30pm – 5:45pm for 2nd and 3rd graders, and on Saturdays 10am – 11:15am for 4th and 5th graders. Sessions take place while the museum is closed to the public.
Group sizes are small and space is limited. They screen all interested candidates to make sure that the accepted children show similar social and communication profiles, and that they have a strong interest in trains.
Screening for Saturday applicants will take place on Saturday September 10 at 10:00am.
Screening for Wednesday applicants will take place on Wednesday September 14 at 4:30pm. Screening for Thursday applicants will take place on Thursday September 15 at 4:30pm.
The program costs $350 for all 10 sessions. Scholarships are available. Contact Meredith Gregory at 718-694-1823 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Applications are due September 8 by 5pm.
