Programs

"Me, Myself, and I"

 

The “Me, Myself and I” Program is a self-awareness curriculum guided by expert artists and musicians, that incorporates painting, drawing, dance, photography, and videography. In 2020, the program will be conducted at Autism Schools where professionals work one-on-one and with groups of students to create and share their self-portraits.

The Program can be customized and adapted to any Autism School curriculum based on children’s’ needs. The initiative helps each participating child (across the spectrum) develop and express their story – with visual and performing arts, digital creations, the written word, and story telling to “paint” their self-portraits. They then tell their story to their families, friends new and old, and the greater community.

Recently, the Award-winning children’s television writer, author, and screenwriter, Rodney Stringfellow, conducted a workshop. During this workshop, children identified their inner super powers and wrote their own story of heroism.

 

The possibilities are endless. If you are interested in bringing the benefits of the “Me, Myself and I” Program to your Autism School, please Contact Us.

“We’re grateful for anything that can bring art to our community of kids. There’s so much benefit from using art—a way of self-expression and self-awareness, to help self-calm. There’s so much benefit!”

“People with Autism are capable. They are capable of working. They are capable of living on their own. It’s time for us to step up and have ambitious leaders go out and do what they can to support these individuals”.
