Programs for people with disabilities

Presenting programs that are accessible for individuals with disabilities is a core function of our work. In specially tailored Bridge Sessions and workshops, our teaching artists present material that is sensitive to the many different characteristics of those we serve, including individuals with traumatic brain injuries, developmental disabilities, autism and vision impairment, among others. Our interactive, adaptive approach means that all participants may fully engage at their own ability levels, regardless of whether a session targets a specific disability audience or whether “mainstreamed” students with special needs attend as part of a general education group.

We also provide live webcasts of select programs so that people who are unable to travel to the venue may still participate. And through an ongoing partnership with Art-Reach, we offer a limited number of free tickets to each of our LiveConnections Presents concerts.
