Subway Sleuths After School Program for Kids on the Autism Spectrum
Subway Sleuths is an innovative program aimed at students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The program uses content about the New York City subway to practice and promote social engagement, collaboration, and problem solving. During the 10 sessions students immerse themselves in transit history and work in partnerships on a project they design. The program ends with a “Subway Sleuths Super Party” where students share their discoveries with family and friends.
