A one day workshop for creative practitioners and teachers working with young people on the autistic spectrum


Book now  Access  

Developed over 25 years, The Bamboozle Approach takes the power of theatre to engage children and young people with complex needs and employs a range of techniques to grow their attention, interest and involvement.

Delivered by one of Bamboozle’s lead artists, this day long workshop will introduce teachers and creative practitioners to the approach and techniques the company uses. Whether you are trying to help an individual child with extremely challenging behaviour to stay in a room, work with others and contribute their own ideas; supporting whole families to connect and play together; or seeking to effect attitudes and practice at a whole school level. It will share the framework Bamboozle uses when working with those on the autistic spectrum and provide practical ideas you can use immediately . Although the workshop will particularly reference working with children on the autistic spectrum, the Bamboozle Approach is applicable to everyone.

Bamboozle has delivered training nationally and internationally with organisations including Shakespeare’s Globe, the National Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne and Shanghai Children’s Art Theatre, as well as with hundreds of Special School staff.

We are continually reminded that when we create an environment that has love, encouragement and opportunity within it, extraordinary achievements are possible for all young people – whatever their abilities and disabilities.Christopher Davies Artistic Director, Bamboozle Theatre Company.
