HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Sci-Quest, Hands-on Science Center is partnering with The Autism Resource Foundation to introduce a new program designed specifically for children on the autism spectrum called Full Spectrum Science.
Full Spectrum Science is a once-a-week program with quality hands-on science and technology curriculum for children with autism. Sci-Quest’s educators received special training from The Autism Resource Foundation over the summer and did a pilot program of Full Spectrum Science to make adjustments.
Full Spectrum Science will use a variety of hands-on activities, experiments, and even games to make science truly come alive for these children.
“The Autism Resource Foundation is truly grateful to Sci-Quest for partnering with us to provide an opportunity for all individuals on the autism spectrum to attend science classes at Sci-Quest, said Norma Pedersen, board member at The Autism Resource Foundation. “This program will not only open up a new hands-on learning opportunity for our children on the autism spectrum, but also provide a fun and safe place to help work on their language, communication and socialization skills, all while having a blast.”
Full Spectrum Science will meet every Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. starting in February. Registration is now open. Cost is $5 for members and $11 for non-members. For more information about Full Spectrum Science including dates and science themes, visit www.sci-quest.org or call 256-837-0606.
