This is a free program for families with children who are five to twelve years of age and on the autism spectrum. Participants look at artwork in the center’s galleries, which is followed by an activity in a museum classroom. A quiet room is available throughout the session with blankets and sensory toys. While the needs of individuals with autism are considered in the design of this program, it is also intended to be fun for parents, siblings, caregivers, and other relatives too.
The program is free, but preregistration is required. Please contact Education (firstname.lastname@example.org(link sends e-mail), (203) 432-2858 with your name, number, and a good time to reach you. A museum educator will contact you by phone to complete and confirm your registration.
