BENEFITING: NEW YORK CENTER FOR AUTISM CHARTER SCHOOL
EVENT DATE: Apr 29, 2017
NYC Autism Charter Schools are the only PUBLIC charter schools in New York State specifically designed for children on the autism spectrum. Students are chosen through a random lottery process – which means that everyone has an equal chance of gaining admission. While tuition is FREE for families who attend our incredible schools, the cost of operating them is high – more than what we receive from the NYC Department of Education. That’s why we rely on the generosity of people like you! NYC Autism Charter School East Harlem provides intensive, individualized instruction to students with autism ages 5-21, ensuring that they receive a high quality, functional education that will help them lead productive, meaningful lives with as much independence as possible. NYC Autism Charter School Bronx will open in September 2017, expanding the successful model we have already established and serving even more children and families. Beyond our students, NYC Autism Charter School staff has also provided workshops and training to hundreds of special education, social service, and medical professionals in an effort raise awareness and improve the quality of services for the entire autism community. Thank you for making a difference!
