Get ready for new adventures and join us in our first ever Explore-Abilities After School Drama Program. Your children will laugh, learn, and rejoice in the power of dramatic play. Teacher-led improvisation, short scenes, story theatre, puppets, and crafts will nurture creativity and assist children in developing imaginative play and social skills. The main focus of this class will be listening and sharing.
I Can Pretend! is an innovative drama-based program that teaches children with autism how to play with peers and form relationships. Created by a seasoned drama educator and parent of a child on the autism spectrum, this program uses best practice teaching for children with autism including modelling, picture activity schedules, familiar routines, repetition and reward. Following your child’s one hour of instruction with I Can Pretend!, they will have exclusive access to the galleries featuring the sensory-friendly adaptations we offer for our Explore-Abilities Mornings.
This program is suitable for children ages 5 – 9.
