AFS was delighted to assist The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum on its Autism Initiative. With funding provided by Autism Speaks, The Museum held several early opening events exclusively for families in the autism community. Educators led tours around the museum, facilitated interactive exhibits that families could enjoy, and led story-telling and crafts activities and demonstrations.
AFS served as evaluators of this innovative program, and met with the museum educators to provide them with feedback to help them further enhance their program.
Additionally, our AFS experts facilitated the museum's Autism Initiative Parent Advisory Council.
