Now in its fourth year, [Extreme Kids & Crew] operates two sensory play and art spaces in Brooklyn where hundreds of families from every borough in New York City meet, and where any type of ability is welcome. Participants include children, teenagers, and young adults on the autism spectrum as well as those with sensory processing disorders, cerebral palsy, blindness, deafness, spina bifida, ADHD, and the multitude of other diagnosed and undiagnosed conditions that place people outside of the “norm.” The programs are designed to give every member of the family an outlet for self expression, whatever form may take:  painting, felting, climbing, jumping, rolling, talking, swinging, dancing, reciting, chanting, yodeling, acting, or, like Ferdinand, “sit just quietly and smell the flowers.”

We’re thrilled to feature this spotlight on Extreme Kids & Crew, a wonderful Brooklyn-based organization! Read the spotlight (with photos) at our website.
