Turning Children’s Focus Into Fun at the Transit Museum

Nava Silton

A former museum official, Marcia Ely, noticed that there were a bunch of children with autism who were fascinated by trains. She decided to consult with experts to create a formal after school program for children with autism. Now six years later, a small group of “Subway Sleuths” meets three times a week in the New York City Transit Museum after hours. The program allows children who partake in a fun, engaging activity while developing the social skills that they lack. Subway Sleuths has brought joy to many children with autism and was recently honored by Michelle Obama at the White House. Read the full New York Times article about the program here
