An improv program for individuals on the autism spectrum
The National Comedy Theatre is proud to present CONNECTIONS – A program designed for Teens and Young Adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder or other social delays
Our program uses improvised theatre to teach, and help students master, creative thinking, listening and social awareness, and to help individuals develop a variety of social and communication skills in a fun and safe environment.
Students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of emotions, listening skills, social skills and pragmatic language while building relationships with peers through play. These skills are taught through various games and improvised scenarios that help individuals explore together and laugh with each other.
Our programs are designed to meet each individual’s needs, but with a goal of fun, friendship and improved social skills for each student.
Classes meet once a week in-person. Additionally, we have a Zoom class that can be chosen in addition to the in-person class, or as a separate stand-alone class.
We limit our classes to 10 participants. Each workshop builds upon the lessons of the previous class and reinforces the ideas taught, while adding new skills.
Classes are ongoing throughout the year and students can join at any time.

Mondays – Teens (ages 15-22) 4:30-6:00

Hendrix loves attending class weekly. We have not missed a session since that first one. He finally has a place where he belongs, and has built friendships along with a sense of community with people his own age."
