Exploring Artism: A Program for Families with Children on the Autism Spectrum

This is a free program for children who are five to twelve years of age and on the autism spectrum. Participants will find a welcoming, engaging, and inclusive learning environment for autism families, including parents, siblings, and other relatives. Learn ways to practice social skills and sustain attention and focus. Spend time in the galleries with a no-fail follow up activity, and in the quiet room with sensory toys and blankets. 

This program is conducted by the Education department of the Yale Center for British Art in consultation with the Yale Child Study Center and is recommended by the Autism Parents Community (APC).
