Subway Sleuths is a 10-week after-school program for 4th and 5th graders at the New York Transit Museum that builds on a shared interest in trains among students on the autism spectrum. It supports peer-to-peer interaction, provides a context for navigating social situations, and develops students’ confidence by affirming their interest in public transit.

Ten weekly sessions are facilitated by Transit Museum Educators and contracted professionals trained in ASD support.

The sessions are at 4:30 p.m. on Thursdays or at 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays at the Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn. For students accepted into the program, the first regular Thursday session will be Feb. 29, and the first regular Saturday session will be March 2.

The in-person screening for 4th-5th graders will be on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 3 and after school on Thursday, Feb. 8. Group sizes are small, and space is limited.

The in-person program costs $350 for the semester for accepted students. Limited partial scholarships are available.
