Sessions include collaborative drama games, music, interpretive dance, making and using puppets and props.
Students with Autism and ADHD are often overwhelmed by external sensory stimulus and can find it difficult to focus and work with others effectively. The use of a darkened environment and selected items that glow under UV light, eliminates distracting stimuli and helps to focus these children so they can start to develop collaborative skills.
