Atlas Community Classes

Atlas Foundation is an all inclusive program that provides afterschool classes, alternative to home school supports, adult classes and respite for families and children/young adults to support our NY community and keep students connected and engaged in their interests and each other! Together there is nothing we can't do! While our title may include Autism we include everyone ; the school is specifically inclined to support students with developmental differences but our community classes are designed for anyone interested in increasing their skills and passions in art, music, health and fitness and growth in vocational/life/mind set in a gentle love and human based fashion

Note: Our inclusion classes welcome both neurotypical students and those with developmental differences. We tailor our programs to the interests and needs of all our students so every class is unique and personal.

The program runs Monday-Friday 9:00AM-6:30PM and Saturday 12:00PM-4:00PM
