Group

The Miracle Project incorporates a groundbreaking and evidence-based methodology that integrates theatre, film, and the expressive arts to bring out the best in individuals with autism and all abilities. Through shared experiences with non-disabled peers, individuals with autism and other disabilities find their voice, develop their talents and become part of a unique, dynamic, inclusive community.

The Miracle Project holds a musical theatre class where students create an original play inspired by the students' interests and unique personalities on Mondays from 4:00pm-5:30pm in Culver City.

Volunteers pair up with youth with autism (ages 7-22) and other disabilities and sing, act, and dance throughout the class.

Training is provided.

Mission Statement

The Miracle Project incorporates a groundbreaking and evidence-based methodology that integrates theatre, film, and the expressive arts to bring out the best in individuals with autism and all abilities. Through shared experiences with non-disabled peers, individuals with autism and other disabilities find their voice, develop their talents and become part of a unique, dynamic, inclusive community.

Description

The Miracle Project is a theater film and expressive arts program for individuals with autism and other disabilities as well as their typically developing siblings and peers customized to positively impact the entire family unit. By focusing on the strengths rather than the deficits of autism The Miracle Project brings out the best in each participant whether they are verbal or non-verbal
with or without a disability. Through shared creative and positive emotional experiences friendships are made anxiety is eased and a dynamic supportive community replaces the sense of isolation many families often feel.
Each year students staff and volunteers create and perform in original musicals based on students’ preferred interests and ideas. Some participants once too shy and withdrawn to even walk into a room full of their peers have now performed in venues in front of hundreds including the Rose Bowl The Pantages Theatre Carnegie Hall and The United Nations.
