Role in ATP: Community Outreach

What makes me passionate aboutAccessible Theatre Project?

I have several personal experiences with autism and wish something similar to ATP had been available for my family back in the UK. I think it’s an incredibly innovative program that provides support for both those on the spectrum and for their family and friends.

My favoriteAccessible Theatre Project Memory:

I remember sitting next to one family at the First Year Players production of “The Addams Family” and giving one little boy a stress ball. The enjoyment and look of relief on his face as he played with it throughout the production really illustrated to me every little difference ATP makes.

Other Involvement:

The Jefferson Literary and Debating Society, Charlottesville Area Riding Therapy, The Cavalier Daily
