More about you: (Short Bio or any other details you'd like people to know)
Founder and Exec Dir of Spectrum Arts, Inc. ("Shenanigans".)

Shenanigans is an applied improv theatre program that addresses the communications challenges of children and adults who have Asperger's or high-functioning autism and other related developmental disorders. We have a team of caring and talented improv instructors who "get" autism, and we find our program growing throughout the metro Atlanta area.

My background is evenly divided between the left-brained me and the right-brained me. I've got a decent business background, I enjoy crunching numbers and the strategic and tactical planning that comes with operating a business. I also find great satisfaction and enjoyment in my Saturday afternoons on the piano, or singing in the car, or creating a mural.

When you live with a child who has Asperger's, you, of necessity, become more educated and researched on a subject you never anticipated you'd need. I know the challenges those on the autistic spectrum face just trying to get by in a world that is so mysterious to them. Because I believe that the joy to be found in experiencing the arts is an integral part of a well-rounded life for people of all abilities, I see accessibility to the performing and creative arts for those with autism as a way to not only develop social skills, but to gain self-confidence and esteem through the experience of performing.
I need help with...
Looking for caring, compassionate, highly motivated and talented improv directors who could get real excited about working with children and adults on the autistic spectrum in the metro Atlanta area.

Hey Sandra!

I was thrilled to find out about Shenanigans!  I am working on building the same thing here in Norfolk, Va.  I hope to make it down to check out one of your workshops soon.

 

Take care,

 

Katie
