I heard about Theater of Possibility when I recently attended a Laurelhurst meeting. They just completed a successful workshop with parents and staff there that was well-received. Theater of Possibility helps teach social skills through acting and improv.
Theater of Possibility (TOP) teaches acting, improvisation, play-creation and collaboration to kids and teens with autism spectrum and other developmental differences, as well as neuro-typical peers. TOP will be offering a two week, half day, summer camp for kids, ages 7-13, M-F August 8-19, 3:45-6:45 PM at University Heights Center, 5031 University Way NE, Seattle, 98105.
Fall classes will be offered 4:15-5:45 PM on Tuesdays (ages 7-13) and Thursdays (ages 14+), for 12 weeks starting in late September.
Tuition is $600 for the summer program and $450 for the fall programs (partial scholarships and pay-what-you-can available). TOP is now a contracted DSHS/DDA respite care provider.
Founded by Lauren Goldman Marshall, an established playwright and theater director and the mother of a teenage girl with Asperger’s, TOP has been serving youth with autism spectrum and other developmental differences since 2010. TOP also offers programs in the classroom and parent-teacher workshops focusing on inclusion. For more information, contact Lauren@laurenmarshall.com, or see www.laurenmarshall.com/
