Traditionally, dramatic arts, or the art of writing, producing, and acting in theatrical plays, has been taught in schools and community theaters. Research in dramatic arts has expanded to therapeutic settings as well. This presentation will review the use of dramatic art elements in speech therapy to target and increase social-pragmatic skills and language development. Parents and professionals will learn the potential benefits and research based strategies of integrating dramatic arts elements into their therapeutic and home settings.
