‘Magic’ teaching method used to engage kids with autism and ADHD

Summer Magic Final
Manhattan, Kan. – A Manhattan autism program is partnering with Kansas State University to study a new method of engaging kids with autism and ADHD.

International magician Kevin Spencer developed the “Hocus Focus” teaching model that uses magic. It’s a curriculum designed to teach executive functioning skills to kids with autism and ADHD.

Kansas State graduate students will teach magic to kids with autism and ADHD at the Flint Hills Summer Fun Camp starting in June.

The camp is holding a fund raiser on Sunday, May 4th at the Sunset Zoo starting at 5:30 p.m.

The event is called “An Evening of Magic and Illusion.” Spencer will be there to show off the magic tricks he uses to work with the kids.

Tickets cost $60. Call 785-587-0123 to reserve your spot.
