Event description

Description

Our December Special Saturdays Class will focus on Orangutans!

Please be sure to register in advance so that we can ensure that we are able to meet the needs of your child. We look forward to seeing you then!

Due to increased demand we now have 2 sessions available. Please choose which session best works with your schedule.

As part of our ongoing partnership with KultureCity to provide inclusive opportunities to all members of the community, the Education Department at the Birmingham Zoo excited to announce our Special Saturdays program has been extended through the rest of 2018! Special Saturdays is a series of zoo-based learning experiences for children and adolescents with cognitive or physical disabilities whose opportunities for engagement in community programs might otherwise be limited. Caregivers must attend all classes with participants to provide behavioral support and meet child-specific needs. In collaboration with KultureCity, this program is designed with the unique learning needs of this population in mind. Using evidence-based teaching and sensory strategies, we hope to provide a fun and engaging educational experience that will benefit all participants.

Classes are held the second Saturday of each month from 10 AM -- 11 AM and 2:30PM -- 3:30PM for students 8 years old and up.

There is no charge for the Special Saturdays program. Space is limited to 10 students per class. Caregivers must attend all classes with participants to provide behavioral support and meet child-specific needs. One registration covers student and caregiver. No need to print tickets. We will meet at the picnic tables behind the ticket booths at the designated class time.
