JULY 15 – AUGUST 21
Mondays & Wednesdays 6:30-8:00pm
With a class performance on August 21
Class size is limited to provide individualized attention and training for each child.
The class is open to children ages 8-12 with a diagnosis of Autism and/or ADHD.
Children with Autism and ADHD often have difficulty naming and understanding different
emotions. Making and keeping friends can be challenging for them, because they often miss
important social cues. Research has shown that teaching social skills through the medium of
drama is a highly effective way to build these skills in children with Autism and ADHD.
The Drama Club has teamed up with Occupational Therapist, Susan Pernice, MS OTR/L to design and implement a new class which specifically teaches social skills to children with Autism and ADHD through a variety of drama-based and sensory-based games and activities. Children will also participate in an acting performance at the end of the session. Through our program, children will receive the therapeutic benefits of participating in the arts, while also having the opportunity to build teamwork skills, confidence, and friendships with like-minded peers.
