We are thrilled to announce that the Museum Access Consortium will be hosting Autism-Friendly Cultural Programs Public Fair on Sunday, April 6th from 2-5PM at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Join us to learn about the many autism-friendly programs and resources offered at cultural institutions throughout New York City! The mission of this public fair is to create a safe space for youth and adults on the autism spectrum and their families to congregate, meet museum and cultural institution professionals, and learn about the multitude of autism-friendly programs and offerings in New York City. There will be hands-on activities, presentations and discussions, and resources to take away to help you plan future visits.
This is the registration for service providers, children and youth on the autism spectrum and their caregivers, adults on the autism spectrum and their caregivers, art therapists, District of Education representatives and anyone else who would like to attend. Please note that space is limited and registration is required.
Please select the correct ticket type below and fill out all the information. If you are a representative from a service provider, Education Professional (DOE, Charter School, etc.), or any other type of related professional AND a caregiver, please choose the caregiver option. There will be an opportunity to describe your additional roles as part of the registration.
