CMA’s Inclusive Saturday Classes for Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder
Online, hosted by Children’s Museum of the Arts
CMA’s Inclusive Saturday Classes provide a free opportunity for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and their family. CMA Teaching Artists are trained in facilitating structured workshops that are specifically designed to help children with Autism develop social skills, creative problem-solving, and expression through art. The program’s supportive environment also helps strengthen family ties and builds a sense of community for families affected by Autism.
