Arts Horizons Special Education Academy Awarded 2011 Flutie Foundation Grant
The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation is dedicated to increasing awareness and improving the quality of life for people and families living with autism. Part of their mission is to fund advocacy programs as well as educational, therapeutic, and recreational opportunities. Annually, the Foundation awards grants to non-profit organizations and schools that provide services, education and advocacy for children living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
SEAA, now in its 5th season, will use this grant to continue its intensive training for teaching artists through theater, dance and visual arts programs for students with autism in NYC Department of Special Education, District 75. Training includes mentorship, practicum experience and professional development for best practices in special education and the arts. To learn more and see a video about SEAA, click here.
We would like to thank the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for supporting our efforts!
