The NY Metro Chapter of the National Autism Association, in partnership with Watch Me Grow, is proud to offer two week-long sensory-sensitive summer programs for children with autism spectrum disorders during the last two weeks of August 2015. Each week-long program will be a fun and therapeutic program for children with autism spectrum disorders in a sensory-sensitive, safe and caring environment where the needs of the children come first. The programs will be held at Watch Me Grow’s brand new space in the heart of the east village located across the street from a community garden and gated park, 525 East 12th Street, NY, NY 10009. The children will play in the gym, visit local parks, and take community-based field trips. Highly trained staff will promote socialization among the participants with a 2:1 child-to-staff ratio.
The New York City Explorers is for children ages 12 and 14, during the summer break between school sessions. The program will be a fun and therapeutic program in a caring and sensory sensitive environment and will focus on cultural outings in Manhattan, including various museums.
The group will meet at Watch Me Grow, a sensory gym equipped to provide sensory motor activities located at 162 West 72nd, Suite 5, Street, New York, NY 10023. The children will meet at the gym, visit a museum or other cultural site and then reconvene at the gym to recap the day. Highly trained staff will promote socialization among the participants with a 2:1 child-to-staff ratio.
Groups will be organized by developmental age to optimize each child’s experience.
Each one week program will be held Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 2:30pm.
Watch Me Grow will be offering an Extended Day Option from 2:30-5:00pm each day. Please contact us for more information!
