Broadway Kids program inspires and educates special needs children

Kids practicing

The Broadway Kids program is a partnership between Loyola Clinical Centers and the Columbia Center for Theatrical Arts which is designed to create theatrical experiences for special needs children that are educational as well as inspirational. The program utilizes a collaborative speech-language and performing arts method to improve social communication skills in children with special needs.

Participants in the Broadway Kids program recently performed Free to Be... You and Me, a musical from the 1970s. The actors included adolescents with Down syndrome, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, apraxia and receptive-expressive language disorder. The performance took place on Dec. 8, 2010 at the Loyola's Columbia Graduate Center and was well received by all of those in attendance.

The Broadway Kids program will feature another performance, A Broadway Review, in the spring. Please see the Broadway Kids flyer if you are interested in having your child participate in this incredible program.
