Q: Can kids without special needs participate?
A: Yes. Children without special needs can participate in the program. For example, siblings who do not have special needs are invited to participate in the classes. Children without special needs benefit from the program by learning, having fun, and serving as a peer model all at the same time.
Q: What is meant by a wide range of special needs?
A: We recognize that there are many special needs and disabilities, some more complex than others, and all special needs and disabilities are included for the program. We provide the opportunity for each child in the class to demonstrate success. An enriching classroom is filled with children with various abilities who shine in the fun and engaging activities.
Q: Is there more than just the instructor for a class?
A: Yes. In addition to the instructor, at least one volunteer also provides support for the students. Volunteers work with the instructor to become familiar with the lesson plan, they support students during class activities, and they provide one-on-one support to a student as needed. Check out our Work and Volunteer page to sign-up for working or volunteering at Joshua’s Stage, we would love to have you!
