Autism Improvised's Flagship Program since 2009!
Shenanigans offers weekly classes of fun and friendship through improvisational acting techniques! With groups for children through adults, our focus is on developing self-confidence, teamwork, focus, and laying the foundation for a better understanding of the hidden rules of social interaction. Excellent for individuals on the autism spectrum, or who are shy, lack self-confidence, and others who can benefit from our fun approach. No acting experience needed, but must be able to participate in a small group with limited direct supports.
An Autism Improvised Transitions Program
Young men and women ages 16-22+ who are college bound, headed for the competitive workforce, and relatively independent living. Code Breakers uses improvised role play, discussion, and fun to develop the crucial "soft skills" needed to succeed in school, post-high school, and, importantly, at work. We incorporate elements of UCLA's PEERS program to enrich our proprietary curriculum, and we work with Georgia Tech's Excel, GVRA's clients, and hold independent topic-driven classes. Requirements include a growing ability to self-assess and motivation to succeed.
An Autism Improvised Transitions Program (currently inactive)
For teen women. Using role play and discussion, focus is on self-advocacy, self-realization, personal safety, and well-being as they grow toward adulthood.
