I Can Pretend

Drama for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

I Can Pretend teachers children with autism how to play with peers and form relationships. Through drama, children learn imaginative play skills and older children hone social skills. 

Created by a seasoned drama teacher and parent of a child on the autism spectrum, I Can Pretend was piloted at the Mantioba Theatre for Young People as part of a graduate study. The program uses best practice teaching for children with autism including picture schedules, familiar routines, repetition, and reward.
