Boost! 5-14 Years
Boost! is small, activity-based afterschool group for children on the autism spectrum or with other social, learning and communication differences. There is a high instructor to student ratio and peer "buddies" to facilitate age appropriate social interactions. Boost! provides a positive and fun environment for your children to interact with peers and work on developing friendship skills. Through typical after-school activities (i.e., board games, arts and and crafts, cooking, music and movement), children are coached to initiate interactions with others, take turns, sustain conversation and learn about each other, as well as to employ self-regulation skills in a group setting. We aim to empower our participants to feel confident about their strengths and abilities and to see themselves as belonging to a social group. Interested families should contact Melissa Lader at mlader@jccmanhattan.org. The Boost! Program is supported by The Morris and Alma Schapiro Fund, The George and Frances Armour Foundation, and the continued support of The New York Collaborates for Autism. (more)LEARN MORE
