Programs for Kids, Teens & Adults with Disabilities at Red Hook Public Library

All Abilities Kids & Teens Music & Movement
1-2, Saturday, May 4
Designed for the needs of young people who have intellectual and/or cognitive disabilities, we stretch, sing, dance, and play percussion instruments. Maggie Rothwell plays acoustic guitar and leads us in a range of musical styles and themes. Call Amy at the library with any questions. If becoming familiar with the space before the program would help your child enjoy the program, we will be happy to arrange a time for you to visit. Registration is required as space is limited.  If you’ve been hesitant to bring your child to library programs, give All Abilities Kids & Teens Music & Movement a try. 

All Abilities Kids & Teens Storytime
10 - 11, Fridays, May 3 & 17
If a storytime that uses a visual schedule and multiple modalities of storytelling sounds like something your child would enjoy, then this is the program for you. Designed with the needs of children and teens with intellectual and/or cognitive disabilities, each session has songs to mark transitions between activities, a felt board story as well as a picture book shared, and an adaptive craft project with individual tools. Registration is required as space is limited.

All Abilities Kids & Teens Science
10:30 - 11:30, Fridays, May 10 & 24
We make hypotheses and test them with hands-on experiments at every session of All Abilities Kids Science. We use a visual schedule, employ bins to ensure everyone has their own tools and supplies, and have instructions in multiple modalities as this program is designed for the needs of youth who have intellectual and/or cognitive disabilities. Registration is required as space is limited. 

All Abilities Adults
12:30 - 1:30, Fridays, May 10 & 24
Join us for an hour of socializing, crafts and science experiments designed for adults with intellectual, cognitive and/or developmental disabilities. All are welcome and no sign-up is required.
