THE JOY OF THE ARTS IN THE AUTISM COMMUNITY

Apr 27 / 2021

FREE

This roundtable brings together artists, parents, educators, and more for a discussion (and celebration!) of the exciting work underway to connect the arts to individuals on the Autism spectrum.

THE JOY OF THE ARTS IN THE AUTISM COMMUNITY

Theater Exercises

Listen: The Hello Song

Last season, Two River Theater teaching artists conducted Spectrum Theater Residencies with four local organizations for students with Autism. The classes inspired Amanda Latham, Music Teacher/Therapist at The Harbor School, to compose this “Hello” song, which everyone sang at the start of each class in their residency!

HELLO SONG LYRICS
