Autism Spectrum Disorder dramaNashville Children’s Theatre is excited to offer theatre classes specifically designed for children ages 8 and up with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We have adapted our immensely popular Theatre Voyagers Series into a six-week session where 2 teaching artists, six children on the spectrum and two peer models (typically developing young people of the same age) will work to adapt an original, informal "show" to be presented to friends and family on the final day of class.

At NCT, every child's success is our priority. NCT supports an inclusive environment but also understands that some children may have more success in an environment designed with structure and strategies suited to their specific needs and with a student teacher ratio that allows for the establishment and constant assessment of individual learner objectives. Theatre Voyagers for ASD is the culmination of two years of research, training, planning, pilot programs and programs in partnership with Vanderbilt Kennedy Center's TRIAD.
