Among Friends Theater Company

One of the most popular Autism Learning Network programs offered by The Kennedy Collective is the Among Friends Theater Company. The seven-week, theatrical ensemble experience encourages social and emotional development, builds self-esteem, and teaches acceptance through working together. The group of actors work together to write, rehearse and perform, under the direction of actor and theater teacher, Meg Kiley Smith.

Empowering People With Autism

Families of individuals with Autism and other disabilities enjoy The Kennedy Collective Autism Learning Network programs because they directly help their loved one address day-to-day challenges in their lives. The year-round, stimulating experiences are vital in helping autistic individuals build social and communications skills.
