SPECIAL NEEDS

Our work in special needs and therapy extends back over 28 years.  We use puppets for child development in schools, hospitals and clinical contexts, both as diagnostic tools and to promote expressive potential.  Through fun and play, puppets are healing tools that can bring joy and well-being.  We are happy to work with smaller groups, please see below for contact, costs and booking information.
