Social Skills on the Stage

Social Skills on the Stage

$400.00

This course offers an opportunity for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to learn and practice social interactions and interpersonal communication skills through theater games and exercises. Students will rehearse the imaginary circumstances of plays and the “real-life” circumstances of the world they encounter outside of the classroom and theater.
This class aims to:
* Help students to enhance their ability to verbally and non-verbally communicate in common, socially interactive settings.
* Use fundamental acting training which will help students to discover social goals, recognize social obstacles, use communicative tactics, and arrive at realistic expectations in order to cognitively lead the student outside of themselves and into the dramatic world of the script and the dramatic world of society.
* Help the student approach and competently handle various interpersonal scenarios which will be encountered throughout their lives.
