We look forward to hearing from you!
Are you an enthusiastic teacher, SLP, OT, ABA therapist, DIRFloortime provider, Theatre School administrator or a parent of a child with autism interested in making a difference in your community? If so, we would LOVE to hear from you!
We have already trained fabulous teachers at The Foote Theatre School in Edmonton and Theatre Direct in Toronto on how to implement our curriculum. We look forward to training more schools and professionals as excited about teaching our program as we are!
"The program has proven itself with both parents and students. Parents have remarked how their children have gained confidence and a better ability
to express themselves through the class. And the real proof is that
the students can't wait to get to class and don't want to leave!
Demetra and her team have provided an excellent structure to build on - weekly activities and themes that allow the children to focus on a topic but also
leaves them plenty of space for creativity! She is always available for
advice and guidance and has been instrumental in helping us to
develop strategies for implementing and refining our program.
We, and our patrons, are very satisfied customers and hope
to continue to grow the program for years to come!"
