Talking with no Words! The role of theatre in the learning process of students with special needs

6 Days

Sandra Salomé

It is known that students with special needs deal with some difficulties that might result in the lack of social-emotional skills. Some conditions, disorders, and behavioral problems, affect the portion of the brain that helps children learn and understand social cues. It may be extremely hard for many students with special needs to learn and behave in a socially productive and calm manner. Another issue for children who physically appear different, act different, or are placed in special classrooms within even an inclusive school is often isolated from typical education peers. It is from our understanding that drama and all the theatre subjects can be a successful tool in the process of including and empowering these students. We believe that drama can be a fun activity that captures the attention of students that struggle with special needs. Theatre can help difficult transitions and explain changes that are always emotionally heavy on these students' daily routine.
