SPECIAL NEEDS CLASSES

MUSIC & DRAMA CLASSES FOR SPECIAL NEEDS

Each term there are group classes for those with intellectual disabilities, which is a definite highlight of my week. These classes are all inclusive and full of expression. Our students are encouraged and inspired to reach their potential.

 

I have seen wonders occur with my students over the last couple of years, from not being able to speak within a group to performing their own poem in front of a large audience. Some students cannot speak and they join in with their own way of communicating. The classes are full of love and the students feel this.

 

I like to create workshops for each classes’ needs so each class is different depending on the age, ability and request from their providers or parents.

NEURO-DIVERSE CLASS  PERFORMANCES

Recent performances: At 3pm, Thursday 27 February 2020 we entertained at Morvern gardens, Baptist Care Retirement Home, Leura.

Our Neuro Diverse Class will be performing for the residents of Baptist Care retirement Home in Leura.

 

We enjoy singing, reciting funny poems, some jokes and uplifting musical theatre songs for the elders. They love to join in too. After the show we spend time together. I encourage my cast to say hello, and listen to the residents.It always brings joy to both us and them.

 

‘Showtime’ which showcases all our creative work throughout this year will be performing at St Hilda’s church early December (Covid restrictions permitting).

 

 

We welcome opportunities to perform for our community and we enjoy entertaining for elders or other community events. Telephone 0401 969606 to enquire.

NDIS APPROVED CLASSES NOW AVAILABLE

 

In 2016 TSHDRAMA enjoyed creating programmes of drama, music, improvisation and helping  to improve communication skills for people with disabilities. And we are expanding our classes in 2018, offering classes in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and Orange region.

We have especially enjoyed teaching excerpts from favourite musicals and seeing our groups (with down syndrome and autism) embrace the music. Loving to dance, be free and express themselves in safe and nurturing environment. Each session, a new theme is chosen and script guidelines are given. The topics include:

  • How to be there for a friend in need
  • What is safe to do, and what’s not safe to do
  • How to communicate to a friend who is sad

These groups are all inclusive and all students get to participate. Even the very shy within the group can come out of their shell, and join in the fun. Although all students are given the choice to watch if they only want to watch.Classes are aimed at uplifting students and increasing fitness levels, improving communication and listening skills. They are also using therapeutic drama scripts which the teacher carefully chooses for each session After many months of patently waiting, submitting forms, phone calls, and working out how to use  their portal,  we are very excited to announce we now have our  registration with the NDIS approved.NDIS:  Registration Number: 67853253.

We have  been assessed that we are eligible for the following supports:

  • Behaviour Support

Daily Tasks/Shared Living

Development Life Skills

Group/Centre Activities

Enquiries for group classes are welcome.
