Laughing With Me! - Improv workshops with Michael O’Keefe (Adults 18 & up) 

Pollak Theatre - 1 PM

Laughing With Me! is the ASD program that is filled with fast-paced, interactive fun!! Students think of communication issues like a game!! They will become flexible within these experiences. The outcome being that now they won’t break, but simply bend. They also learn that it’s OK to fail. It’s simply a part of life that’s ultimately not a big deal. Also, a common occurrence of the program is an understanding of a special kind of laughter that gives a boost to self-confidence and creates a feeling of camaraderie. This is called “earned laughter”, because the students realize that they have done something funny on purpose, in a setting that promotes and encourages that behavior. Delve into the ASD workshop where we look at how we handle what comes our way - expected or not! Add in the great fun and team spirit built into our games. We'll be playing with both our strengths and our quirks. Free but registration is required.
