Applications for Subway Sleuths Online with the New York Transit Museum are due February 1st at 3:00 pm. Learn more and apply for the Spring 2021 semester.
Subway Sleuths is a program that uses a shared interest in trains among 2nd – 5th grade students on the autism spectrum as a means to encourage social interaction between peers. Using a strength-based approach, participants explore the Transit Museum’s content and collection, sharing their enthusiasm with others while engaging in transit-themed games and activities. Groups are facilitated by contracted professionals trained in ASD support and Transit Museum Educators.
Eight weekly online sessions are facilitated by a contracted professional trained in ASD support and a Transit Museum Educator. For accepted students, the 2nd-3rd grade group meets online on Tuesdays at 4:15 pm, and the 4th-5th grade group meets online on Wednesdays at 4:15 pm. Subway Sleuths will be presented via the Zoom platform during the months of March and April.
