Spark is a supportive mentoring group program for young people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or special needs, designed to help them socialize and grow. We pair typically-developing children and teens as buddies to ASD children, to serve as social models, mentors, and friends. Spark offers the opportunity to learn conversational skills and engage in leisure skills, while reinforcing empathy and engagement.
A new weekly group begins on September 9th and runs through December 16th, 2015 at The Sherkow Center for Child Development & ASD. 9 East 93rd Street. New York, New York 10128
To enroll, groups are formed by appointment with directors Susan P. Sherkow, M.D. and Jenifer Clark, PhD. For more information, please contact us at 212-722-0090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
