Drama, Music, Movement Classes for Children with Special Needs

‘The Performing Arts Children’s Charity’ runs classes for Children with Special Needs. Through the Performing Arts we promote independence and self-confidence and help build a brighter future for children with Autism, Down syndrome, Hearing Impairment, Cerebral Palsy and Learning Disabilities.

‘The Performing Arts Children’s Charity’ uses the ‘InStep’ Programme to deliver specific outcomes to the class participants. By working together and using role-play, storytelling and shared narratives the children increase their levels of self-confidence and self-esteem. Positive outcomes are achieved across the spectrum of disabilities and this is confirmed by the feedback that we receive from parents and teachers. The research concludes that children with disabilities working together in a group, following a well-defined systemic framework, can achieve levels of self-confidence and self-esteem that would be impossible in isolation.
