What is the staff to student ratio?
Our workshops take up to 15 students per instructor. The workshops
are designed to develop confidence and social and leadership abilities
through the experience of learning performance-based skills. We
are not designed to teach social skills through direct intervention.
For this reason, it is important that students participating in the
workshops are behaviorally and cognitively ready to participate
independently in a group of this size.
What is the functioning level of the kids in
The children and teens in our program are
very bright and function well behaviorally and adaptively, however, they may
struggle with shyness, difficulty connecting with their peers, or
difficulty reading other's body language. Our program also
welcomes students interested in further developing their acting
or performance knowledge, skills, and experience.
What diagnoses do the kids have?
While many of our students have no diagnosis or attend our program to
overcome "shyness," typical diagnoses may include Nonverbal
Learning Disorder, high functioning ASD (formerly Asperger's Disorder),
Social Communication Disorder, ADHD, dual-exceptional giftedness, and Social Anxiety.
