At Camp Yes And, autistic teens and teachers learn improv as a way to develop social communication skills and transform teaching and learning. Your support can help keep camp free for all!
Fans who remember watching Drew Carey and his buddies make up scenes and songs on the TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” know that improv is a lot of fun. Improv is also a refined system of observing, connecting, and responding that has one major rule: saying yes to our partners and adding our own ideas in order to create something new together.
The Center on Education and Lifelong Learning and the Indiana Resource Center for Autism at Indiana University sponsor Camp Yes And —an improv summer camp for teens on the autism spectrum and teachers. During each morning of camp, teachers learn the techniques of improv and their application to supporting youth on the spectrum. Each afternoon, teachers and camp leaders co-facilitate an improv camp for teens on the spectrum. Visit yesand.indiana.edu to learn more about participating in the camp.
