This innovative program, for students on the autism spectrum and students diagnosed with social-communication disorders, uses content about the New York City subway to practice and promote social engagments, collaboration and problem solving. The 10-week program takes place at the New York Transit Museum in downtown Brooklyn (corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street).
To form our Spring 2014 Subway Sleuth's group, expert facilitators observe students in a full half-hour screening session. The goal of the screening session is to formgroups of students who share similar social and communication profiles. Facilitators are looking for sleuths who can use language to share experiences and interests, collaborate in small groups on shared projects, and move as a group through the Transit Museum during sessions with support.
