InterActing is a non-profit theater school that encourages autistic teenagers and students through improvisation skills to break out of their patterns of ritual and routine to embrace the unexpected. Through engaging exercises, we teach our students to become more flexible and confident, but most importantly we want them to have fun.

Autistic teenagers often find conversations challenging and unpredictable. At the same time, they come into an age where they want to belong to the group, yet they have a harder time making connections with peers. This can lead to feeling misunderstood and they end up isolated.

Having a neurodivergent son myself, it is important to keep raising awareness for autism on our way to a more inclusive society. Through improvisation, we at InterActing teach young people with autism, flexibility and self confidence so they can let go of their rituals and routines to embrace our scriptless world without fear.
