Theatre Horizon and Philadelphia Young Playwrights have teamed up to expand Theatre Horizon's Autism Drama Program and serve young adults on the autism spectrum. This new Playwrighting class:
introduces participants to the fundamentals of storytelling
helps writers and actors develop the skills necessary to communicate their ideas effectively
challenges students to push beyond their comfort zones and engage with one another
fills a gap in services for young adults with autism who are aging out of social services after at 18 and beyond
Our classes are offered on a sliding scale to meet the needs of families involved.
