Accolades for Connections
“Last night after class, I watched my son engaged in telling a story to his partner. He used his whole body to reenact a scene. That might not seem like much to you, but he has had a story-telling goal on his IEP for years.
“Every member of my son’s team remarked on what a monumental improvement he has made in the area of spontaneous speech! We all attribute it to improv training. Nothing we’ve ever done has made this much of a difference. These skills are teachable and they really are transferable!”
“It’s the best intervention for kids with this learning profile I’ve ever seen.”
