After a disastrous summer theater program for kids on the autism spectrum summer before last, this mama is happy and proud to see my girl on stage. The only difference: the PEOPLE. Detoxing from the bad experience and "experts" took a long time and she didn't consider any theater programs for a solid year. "Lemonade Mouth" in a small dance studio last summer allowed her to dip a toe into the water again. December's musical was performed in a theater on a stage and not in a dance studio. She conquered a lot of nerves & anxiety, pain (sounds, lights, crowds), illness (strep throat, again, and that brings another set of challenges), and that past negative experience. I am one proud mom.
