Autistic Kids Soar in Unique Partnership with TheatreThe Autism Site
The Academy for Precision Learning in Seattle (APL) teaches standard classes for typically developing children, and also has classes for autistic students. The school shares the building with Broadway Bound, a theatre group for kids that’s run by Jimmy Nixon. Four years ago, Jimmy Nixon and the executive director of APL, Jennifer Annable, decided to encourage the autistic students to try out for the theatre’s productions.
