Special Saturdays

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Join us to learn about Giraffes!

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide inclusive opportunities to all members of the community, the Education Department at the Birmingham Zoo and KultureCity are excited to announce our new Special Saturdays program. Special Saturdays is a series of zoo-based learning experiences for children and adolescents with cognitive or physical disabilities whose opportunities for engagement in community programs might otherwise be limited. Caregivers must attend all classes with participants to provide behavioral support and meet child-specific needs. This program is designed with the unique learning needs of this population in mind. Using evidence-based teaching and sensory strategies, we hope to provide a fun and engaging educational experience that will benefit all participants.

Classes are held the second Saturday of each month from 10am-11am and 2:30-3:30pm for students age 8 and up.

There is no charge for the Special Saturdays program. Space is limited to 10 students per class. Caregivers must attend all classes with participants to provide behavioral support and meet child-specific needs.

To apply to participate, complete this online registration form.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Carrie Brooks at cbrooks@birminghamzoo.com or Roger Torbert at rtorbert@birminghamzoo.com
