Our unique Red Kite Classes and Camps create dynamic learning experiences for children on the autism spectrum. We aim to foster a shared arts experiences that encourage self-expression, social engagement, creative exploration, and above all, FUN!

Covid-19 Notice

During this difficult time when many students aren’t in school, Chicago Children’s Theatre understands that children with autism and their families are highly impacted by all these changes. We are continuing our mission to be of service to neurodiverse students, by encouraging families to stay home and join in on one of our many Red Kite Fly@Home Classes!

To stay connected with our students, we are offering weekly live and interactive classes via Zoom and uploading classes and activity videos for you to watch at home. We will also be sharing videos that teach families how to play our Drama Time games at home.

All you need to participate in virtual classes is a smart device or computer with the ZOOM Application installed (download here). Families will receive instructions on how to log in for classes following sign up.

Red Kite Curriculum

Red Kite curriculum is an adaptive theater program for young people on the autism spectrum and other neurodiverse learners. The primary pillar of our curriculum is social-emotional learning (SEL), utilizing sensory drama games to engage each student’s ability to work within a group and explore their emotional expressivity and understanding. Our classes engage in creative play and sensory experiences to encourage students to connect with their unique body, voice, imagination, and with the community around them.
