Friday, April 17th, the Georgia College Museum will offer a training focusing on touring techniques for visitors with special needs. We are so excited to welcome back Jen Oleniczak, Founder/Director The Engaging Educator a NYC-based organization that specializes in theatre, improv, and movement workshops as well as professional developments for educators.

At the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Jen is a lead educator with the Guggenheim for All: Reaching Students on the Autism Spectrum, a program designed specifically to serve students on the autism spectrum. One of her residencies at the Manhattan Children's Center received a Community Leadership Award in 2014. Additionally, she works with the Theatre Development Fund’s Accessibility Program through the Autism Initiative, providing kids and their families autism friendly performances of Broadway shows.

Through The Engaging Educator, Jen piloted a program with the Queens Museum of Art examining connections between improv, art and autism. She plans to continue this partnership while she works on her MA (and BCaBA!) in Autism Education through St. Joseph’s.

Please see Jen’s article featured in the Huff Post/Healthy Living, (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jen-oleniczak-/improving-on-the-autism-spectrum_b_5269643.html).
