P.S. 176 in Co-op City recognized for its work with autistic students

While there are dozens of programs throughout the city aimed at helping and teaching young people with autism, one Bronx school is standing out. The program at P.S. 176 in Co-op City was recently recognized as being one of the five most effective programs for autistic youth in New York State. With small classroom settings, a broad curriculum, and a wide-range of activities, the program is dedicated to serving some of the most severely challenged students in the Bronx. Students range from ages 5 to 21. Teachers say they place an emphasis on everything from the arts, to being able to cope independently with life choices.
