Live animals, photographs, skull models, pelts, animal figures and more are used to engage students and demonstrate concepts. The program utilizes a sensory motor approach where students move between stations and are encouraged to touch, smell and feel all appropriate items. The program can be geared towards students of any age and functioning level.

The March 15 class, “No Bones About It,” is designed for students ages 6-18 with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other sensory issues. The class fee is $10 and includes an accompanying adult. All students must register online in advance by March 9 to ensure their place in the class. Visit hoglezoo.org/zoojustforyou for more information and to register your child. Email Elise at zoojustforyou@hoglezoo.org for more information.
