Red Kite Classes & Camp

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!

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.
