Adventures in Social Drama (ASD)

UPDATED: November 3, 2020

Established in April 2007, Adventures in Social Drama (ASD) began offering drama classes to individuals on the autism spectrum to enhance their social and communication skills. Today ASD addresses problematic social issues through theatre based role-play workshops to promote artistic expression and generate awareness of a wide variety of social issues including, but not limited to, ethnic, socio-economic, generational and cultural differences. Adventures in Social Drama constructed Role-play Theatre Analysis (RTA) as a tool within a safe environment to help individuals establish healthy, meaningful relationships and achieve higher goals. Dramatic play serves as a catalyst for building community wherein participants are free to express thoughts and feelings concerning their perceptions of life and life’s challenges. In addition, ASD has used social drumming as a large group music making initiative for residential care facilities and skilled nursing.
