Since 2016, A.B.L.E. has been creating innovative theatre and film, projects for, with, and by actors with a range of disabilities including Down syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy. A.B.L.E. has built a methodology rooted in fostering agency and independence, and celebrating the creativity of individuals of all abilities. Let us share what we know with you!

A.B.L.E. offers engaging virtual and in-person Professional Development sessions that can help your organization demonstrate your commitment to diversity and accessibility. While theatre practice underpins all of A.B.L.E.'s work, our sessions can benefit any group who wants to make their space more inclusive - whether that space is a rehearsal room, a board room, or any place in between.

We’ll bring a team of Teaching Artists and Creative Associates - leaders with intellectual and developmental disabilities - to your workplace to build skills, improve communication, and create more inclusive environments.

Some available session topics include:

  • Communicating About Disability

  • Disability Representation on Stage and Screen

  • Understanding & Engaging the 8 Senses

  • Top 10 Tips for an Inclusive Rehearsal

Participants will come away with a greater awareness of the disability community, and actionable ways they can make their work more accessible.
