VANDALIA — The program at the October 8 dinner meeting of the Vandalia Lions was provided by Katie O’Leary representing the Brighter Connections Theatre Organization. She explained how different situations can be unsettling to those suffering from Autism which creates a desire to withdraw.
O’Leary said that Drama Therapy is being used to create a more outgoing person through on-stage role-playing. Two parents and their sons, Carolyn & Mark Krug, and Ruth & Will Hutzel, were also present.
The two boys demonstrated a short skit while reading form a prepared script. Anyone interested in this program can access the Brighter Connections Theatre website at http://bctheatre.wix.com/brighterconnections.
