The ASD Nest program at P.S. 32 is an innovative program providing high functioning children on the Autistic Spectrum the opportunity to attend collaborative team teaching classes with general education students. In partnership with New York University, a special social curriculum has been designed to support these students in a less restrictive setting then they might otherwise need. At the same time, this population adds a richness and diversity to our school from which all children benefit. Speech, Occupational, and Physical therapists, as well as Social Workers work with children and staff to ensure that all students acquire the academic, social and emotional skills they need to reach their full potential.
The attached e-newsletter is produced by the ASD Nest Support Project at NYU Steinhardt, which is intended to provide useful information to families whose children are in the New York City Department of Education’s ASD Nest Program, primarily information about the ASD Nest Program.
