Before elementary school. Before kindergarten. Before preschool. Children are learning. Not just learning; they are building the foundations that will support their education for years to come. Science has proved that birth to age 5 is perhaps the most important period of development in a child’s life.
This week we welcomed guests from NYU's Nest Support Project. The team shared with us information on the Nest Program, an NYC Department of Education inclusion initiative for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder in community schools. The program integrates children with ASD in community schools and delivers specialized curricula to help ensure academic success.
