SENSORY STAGE STARS
ASD Specific classes
All classes run for an 10 week term for €180
These classes are held in our Mount Oval Studio, Rochestown and are for children, verbal and non-verbal.
Our classes are where our students can feel safe and explore the world around them, through sensory and role play.
We have classes run throughout the summer, to give some routine for our students. Our teacher has completed the Lámh Module One Course, is certified in Six Bricks Lego and holds an Advanced Diploma in Autism Awareness.
The skills developed in our drama classes closely correspond with three of the main impairments seen in autism: social interaction, communication and flexibility of imagination.
PLACES ARE VERY LIMITED, SO BOOKING IS ADVISABLE!
Our classes have a different theme each week. There will be plenty of visual and vocal communication, puppets. improvisation, role play, vocal exercises, sensory play to include our eight senses and most of all, we guarantee learning through fun.

Pre-school is part of the golden window of opportunity for working with childrer on the autism spectrum.
During the early childhood years, kids are growing and developing at an amazing rate, and this is the ideal time to help your child learn to connect with others, regulate his or her senses, improve communication, and practice many other skills through sensory play and music.
THURSDAY 1:00pm - 1:45pm
PIANO + MUSIC
Music speaks louder than words.
Children on the spectrum, learn better, when they can relate their lessons to something visually attractive. Each musical note on the piano is represented by a coloured symbol. You then match that symbol to a sticker on the piano.
The matching element means this way of playing is instantly accessible. If you can match, you can play!
Six students per class

Colours, simple tunes and hand-eye co-ordination exercises can go a long way in helping them to like and retain what they learn.
