InFocus Acting for NDIS Clients
Acting Classes for People with ASD and ADHD
As well as practicing Social Interactions in a safe environment and understanding the consequences thereof, Clients work on Greater Theory of Mind – what it means to see things from other perspectives. Clients also get to use Acting Classes like a ‘gym for their emotions’ – working out those feelings and gaining better control over them through practice and understanding.
As with all Acting Classes, InFocus strives to create a safe space for everyone. We work with youth on the spectrum, and have a good understanding of how to interact in ways that are both safe and encourage social behaviour skills. We have no tolerance for intolerance, and no matter what you identify with, or as, we are here to provide a fun, learning environment. We are LGBTQIA+ friendly, so if you’re not, this isn’t the place for you.
The use of Improvisational Games is great, challenging and fun. It helps Clients feel the freedom of being okay with making mistakes. Failure is how we learn, and allowing yourself to be okay with ‘not being perfect’ can be very difficult for those on the spectrum. These games build confidence and can help with social cues such as eye contact.
Writers use certain techniques to help Actors understand how to present the line. By studying scripts, we learn how to interpret that code, and thereby upskill out Cold Reading abilities! Imagine going to an Audition, and your read is so good that Casting wants you to read for a bigger part – do you have the skills it takes to read it in ways that will impress and inspire them? We can show you how.
We hold weekly sessions during the day Monday through Friday! We are up and down the Coast from Tweed to Coomera!
