I am wondering if anyone can direct me to who and where to reach out to?

We have a children's studio midtown east Manhattan. We offer parent and child classes - a mix of art and music and sensory classes for tots and young kids. Messy Art and rock and roll, gross motor, all in an energetic, fun mix. (We were voted one of the top 10 music programs for kids - TONYkids 2010.)

We have had some success with kids with Autism attending our regular classes. Those parents have suggested we offer a class especially for children on the autism spectrum. I would love to do that.(My adult cousin has autism so I also have a personal interest.)

You can read about the center and our work at www.moonsoup.net

My bio is there too.

Any direction or help would be greatly appreciated.
