All of the programmes we offer are student focused to meet the needs of the individual. Prior to enrolling in a class, each student will either individually, or in conjunction with their family / caregivers, complete an online registration form. The purpose of this is to identify the strengths and weaknesses so that we can grow and extend ourselves.  If you need more information about our classes, you can get in touch with one of our specialist Speech + Drama teachers.  Get involved in an ICAN Act! class today!

ICAN Act classes are specifically designed to encourage individuals of ALL abilities to understand, respond to and use speech and drama in a wide range of situations.

We foster a fun and non-judgmental environment to learn and develop new skills. ICAN Act gives everyone involved the chance to experience the buzz and thrill of performing and coming together through the love of drama. Within each group you can be assured that each student will receive the individual attention they need. The class is one hour in duration and occurs on a weekly basis over the year.
