The Columbia Center for Theatrical Arts (CCTA) Announces Its Theater Program for Special Needs Youth
Date:12/18/2012

Columbia, MD (PRWEB) December 18, 2012

The Columbia Center for Theatrical Arts (CCTA) has received funding from The Columbia Bank and CVS/Caremark to support theater arts programming for special needs youth in Howard County, MD. This innovative project utilizes the power of theater to provide theatrical experiences that are therapeutic as well as inspirational under the guidance of speech-language pathologists, special education specialists, local school system and the CCTA staff. Through theater, these young actors have an opportunity to express themselves, step out of their shell and gain a greater awareness of and sensitivity toward others.

The program began in 2009 in partnership with the Loyola University Maryland Clinical Center's Columbia Campus as a pilot class for special needs youth ages 10 – 17. It has grown to include a third partner, the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS), and today serves approximately 35 students ages 9-18 annually.

Both the $500 grant from The Columbia Bank and $1,500 grant from CVS/Caremark will support programming at the following locations:

St. John’s Parish Day School (Ellicott City, MD) – A Saturday morning class geared toward special needs youth in grades 4 – 8. It is taught by a CCTA musical theater instructor and musical director with guidance from a speech-language pathologist. An assistant and volunteers provide nearly a 1:1 staff-to-student ratio. It runs both fall and spring and culminates in an original performance.

Glenelg High School (Glenelg, MD) - An inclusive theater project in partnership with the school's Special Education and Theater departments. "Typical" students at the school vo
