Online participants will acquire skills in conducting creative drama and music activities for students who have a wide range of disabilities as well as abilities. When you employ these newly acquired skills, your students will gain much improved communication, self-esteem, cooperation, and a sense of fun. Included are:
Program Four: Original Award-Winning, Orchestral Music Videos that showcase performers with and without disabilities, as well as captivating original art.
- These videos have been honored by VSA, a Program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and selected to be part of their International Digital Arts Festival, "40 Days Around the World," celebrating the 40th anniversary of VSA, founded by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith. This festival also celebrates the anniversary of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act.
- Also, we have an educational component, customized for your group, to join in tandem with the videos, if desired. The imaginative music videos and informative presentation are about The Father of American Landscape Architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted, the story behind his success, and America's parks over the centuries. For ages 12+
Program Five: Interactive Multiple Intelligences Workshops with a lively, instructive approach for educators, paraprofessionals, aides, therapists, administrators, parents, caregivers, student teachers, teaching artists, advocates, and all other interested organizations, inclusive of empowered people with disabilities.
