Louder Than Words
Louder Than Words is a unique drama group for young people who have additional needs age 7+. Each week young people can have fun, make friends and learn new skills in drama, music, storytelling in a supported and friendly environment with a team of experienced practitioners. Sessions are planned with the individual needs of young people in mind and delivered in a way which supports each group member’s development and participation and plays to their strengths. Each term young people have the opportunity to share what they have learnt and created with their families.
Sessions are free to participants and run Mondays 5-30-6.30 at our studio in Barton Hill Settlement.
