A free program for families with children 5 to 10 years of age on the autism spectrum. Families learn to look and respond to art work in the museum’s galleries. Join us and engage in group conversations in the galleries, a follow-up art project in a museum classroom, and much more. While we have taken into account the needs of individuals with autism in designing this program, it is intended to be fun for parents, siblings, and other relatives too!
Our goal is to create a welcoming, engaging, and inclusive learning environment. 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 Autism Parents Community (APC).
Free but pre-registration is required. Please email the YCBA Education Department or call 203 432 2858 with your name, number, and a good time to reach you on the telephone. A museum educator will contact you by phone to complete your registration.
