    • EdTA Professional Learning Webinar: Teaching Theatre to Students on the Spectrum

      As of 2021, the CDC says one in 44 children are on the Autism Spectrum, so chances are several are going to end up in your drama class! Each person who has ASD has challenges in similar areas, but each is also unique.
