Every Child Belongs Here

Our Drama School continually strives to learn and grow as the world changes in relation to access and inclusion practices. Here are just a few of the ways we accommodate every student.

Accessibility

NCT is completely wheelchair accessible, and we make accommodations for mobility and physical disabilities.

Informed Teachers

All Teaching Artists have continued training on inclusion, implicit bias, and trauma-informed practices.

Sensory Regulation

Classrooms have ‘calm corners’ where students can regulate if activities become over-stimulating. Noise-reducing headphones and fidget tools are also available. All students also have access to visit our Sensory Room with a staff member.

Attention Aids

Visual class schedules are utilized so students know what to expect each day. We also use visual time timers to help students with time-management.

Class Expectations

All classes utilize verbal as well as discussed written agreements. Students help with the creation of and thus understand classroom behavioral expectations.

Inclusive Nametags

Nametags are printed using the class color as well as listing the color names for colorblind students. Additionally, student and teacher pronouns are listed on all nametags.

A class Social Story can be found below to help navigate our classes. A Social Story is a tool to help improve a child’s understanding of expectations during an unfamiliar event and were originally designed to support neurodivergent students. However, this can be a useful tool for any student who is unsure about what to expect from a new experience. We share these resources to make NCT classes inclusive for ALL students.

We invite you to learn more about all of our accessibility and inclusion practices as well as our departmental teaching philosophy.

NCT Scholarships

We believe that all young people in Middle Tennessee deserve access to high-quality arts programming. NCT offers scholarships, ticket discounts and more.
