Yes, You “Will” on Shakespeare’s Island!

The IPFW Community Arts Academy (CAA) is offering Shakespeare’s Island, a class for students ages 10–18 with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

This enlightening workshop aims to help students improve their ability to recognize emotions and enhance their communication skills. Games based on Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” will be played throughout the class. A parent or caregiver is required to be in attendance with each student.

CAA drama instructor Gloria Minnich received training in the Hunter Heartbeat Method (HHM) at Ohio State during the Shakespeare and Autism Workshop, working with students on the autism spectrum in small group settings. Each session will be led by Minnich, with assistance from a role model who also trained in HHM and up to three helpers.
