Summer Transition Program

CUNY would like to invite both incoming and current college students on the spectrum (from CUNY and elsewhere) to enroll in their second summer transition program this fall between August 3d and August 14th. They conducted their first summer transition program last summer. Christina Shane-Simpson will be presenting a talk about that first program at the International Meeting for Autism Research this year. If other campuses would like to collaborate in developing the upcoming summer transition program, they would love that.

Magic for Autism

How does the “Magic” work? It works when you customize an autism-friendly vacation package around you and your special child. We’ll help you with that spell and here’s how we do it:

You take a very special flight, with other families whose children have ASD. That’s right, you have other families on board who face many of the same issues as you do. Instead of being judged, you’ll find help. Maybe you’ll get to help another family when they need it?

If yours is the only family leaving from your local airport, we’ll provide you with our Individual Flight Assistance Package, at no cost. We’ll make arrangements with your airline and with TSA on your behalf.

When you get to your destination, we’ll provide qualified, experienced, screened staff for respite breaks and support.

Take a look at this magic spell in action. See our trip to Walt Disney World in Florida for May 2015.

For more information and reservations, call 203-750-0000 now!

Big Apple Circus

Big Apple Circus & Autism Speaks have teamed up for two sensory-friendly performances at Boston's City Plaza. The shows are both on Tuesday, April 7, 2015, just outside Boston City Hall and will be at 11:00am and at 6:00pm.

Their magical All-New Show, METAMORPHOSIS, is said to be a realm of enchantment and illusion, a dreamscape domain where no one sits more than 50 feet from ringside, and nothing is impossible! You will be thrilled by the Flying Trapeze, the razzle-dazzle of the Rolla-Bolla, the dynamo of the Diablo, the risky rhythms of the Risley team, the cunning conjurors of the Quick-Change, and the incredible flexible limbs of the Contortionists. See and hear the musical merriment of their featured clown and camels, horses, playful pooches and more. Come immerse yourself in the wonder, joy and astounding magic of METAMORPHOSIS!

There is also a social story that can be viewed: http://bit.ly/bacsocial

A series of 8 Sensory Friendly Shows that began in New York City in October, will have shows in New York, New Jersey and Boston. To read about the experience at the first New York City show please visit: http://www.autismspeaks.org/news/news-item/big-apple-circus-kicks-sensory-friendly-performances
