Posted on Tuesday, December 31, 2013 at 10:58 AM

While it takes proper adjustments, an environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum to learn about the arts can be beneficial for all.

ArtsErie and the Barber National Institute will partner with VSA/PA to provide a one-hour workshop on January 8th at 10 a.m. for arts and cultural organizations and artists interested in learning how to prepare an environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum. Simple modifications to communications and physical space can be made to welcome this population to your venue.

This workshop is free and will be hosted at the Barber National Institute. R.S.V.P. by calling Christie at the Barber National Institute: 814-878-5903. Parking is available in the BNI parking lot located just off of the Bayfront Highway.
