Interview With Elaine Finkletaub: Teaching Creative Expression To Children With Mixed Abilities

Elaine Finkletaub of Chickenshed talks about how the the theater company remained unbreakable during 2020 in its mission to make creative activities, self-expression, and performance to children with disabilities.

We can already imagine a day when traditional classes might become obsolete. Like live performances, the pandemic forced Education to move online, and be available over any distance. But as simple as it sounds, for organizations like Chickenshed, that that offers programs designed for children and youths with mixed abilities, there are some very unique challenges to address. For example, how to teach movement to a child that has limited mobility, or how to help a child that is non-verbal feel included? My guest in this episode, Elaine Finkletaub, talks about how Chickenshed has remained unbreakable in its mission to make creative activities, self-expression, and performance available to anyone who has the desire, no matter what their background or circumstances. Not only was only was this an inspiring story to hear, but I think there’s a lot that educators of every type can learn from this small theater company.
