The Spectrum is an after-school program designed to be accessible to children with autism. Children with autism from the surrounding community come to Haverford once a week and our student interns design activities for them.
The Spectrum is every Thursday from 5-6:30 and we have four 6 week sessions throughout the school year. Every week, a group of Haveford student interns design activities for the kids. The Spectrum is not a therapy group, but is instead simply designed for kids to have fun. Our goal is to create an environment where children with autism can come together, play, and interact in a non-classroom setting so they can make friends and enjoy themselves without outside pressure. While Dragonfly Forest is the organization that sponsors the Specturm program, our branch is independently run by Haverford students with input and feedback from camp experts at Dragonfly Forest.
