About this program
Every child benefits from an arts experience. Through sensory materials, storybooks/graphic novels, and dramatic play, this workshop creates enriching opportunities for children with Autism and other specialized learning needs. We explore creativity, movement and storytelling, and balance individual expression with collaboration. The result is a workshop that is inventive, inspiring and fun for everyone.
Notes: Information about students’ specialized needs are requested at least one week before the start of the workshop. Special support workers are encouraged to participate alongside the students
