Autism Awareness Month

Autism Awareness Month

Please join the 282 school community this month as we bring awareness to Autism. In September, the ASD Horizon program was launched at PS282 welcoming Kindergarten students with Autism and our ASD community will grow year by year. This specialized program encourages opportunities for inclusion with the general elementary school population.
