discovery arts programs


Discovery Arts programs were introduced in response to the community’s need for specialized art programming for children with learning differences and/or physical disabilities, such as those associated with Autism, ADHD, Down syndrome, and cerebral palsy, among other causes. Young Audiences of Houston aligns program content with Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) academic standards, exposing youth to a vast array of tailored, therapeutic arts experiences that develop skills in the five Core SEL Competencies: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision Making.
