Introducing Our New Adaptive Cooking Program! Come learn some kitchen safety, vocabulary, food Prep skills, and tasty recipes! For ages 8 to 21 years old who identify as an individual with special needs. 

Why Cooking?

It's not just about the food!
Learning to prepare simple meals can improve independence and nutrition. Cooking skills can be valuable to both children with disabilities and young adults who are transitioning to post-secondary education or independent living.
My Special Chef is for beginners. Individuals must be able to work in a group setting with a maximum of 5 people and be able to follow simple step directions. 
*This program is not suitable for individuals with food allergies or dysphagia. 

What to bring: comfortable attire/apron, indoor sneakers, hair tied back and a water bottle (optional).
**Covid-19 NY State DOH & CDC Guidelines apply
