Teens & Young Adults (Ages 14-21) will create digital drawings using Python Trinket.
At the TKU Codes event, students and families will engage in a variety of coding and tech activities.
Q: Do I have to participate in the parent workshop in order to have my child join the student workshop?
A: While we would love to have a family affair, it is not required that you participate in the parent workshop in order for your child to participate in the student workshop.
Q: My child is registered for the regular Sunday program at 3:30 PM. What will they do during the time this event ends until the program starts at 3:30 PM?
A: Students will have fun free time and be able to remain in the class. You can therefore pick them up at 6:30.
Q: My child has allergies. Will there be food available for them?
A: The food offered will be varied with gluten free, vegetarian, and dairy free options. If you are concerned or your child has many allergies, we recommend having them come with their own lunch.
Q: How do I know if my child is right for this program?
Tech Kids Unlimited is designed for children ages 7-21 years of age who have been diagnosed with learning and emotional disabilities such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Auditory Processing Disorder, Anxiety, OCD, Executive Processing and Dyslexia. Students don’t need any previous tech knowledge to attend. TKU students usually attend private schools for students with disabilities, are home-schooled, go to non-public schools as well as the NYC Department of Education’s ASD NEST program. Most students have an IEP or a 504Plan. Students should be able to function in a classroom-like environment and work mostly independently. We understand that TKU students will need additional help and support, and we have staff to make sure they can succeed. At this time, we cannot accommodate non-verbal students.
