It’s My Move is about the transition from school to adult life. The piece is based on the ‘Forum Theatre’ style, where the audience explore how to make positive outcomes through changing the actions of the characters. It explores the issues for a group of young people with learning disabilities, and includes multiple communication tools including music, movement, poetry, Makaton and film.
The aims of It’s My Move are:
- Reduce stress and anxiety around transition for young people with learning difficulties and disabilities (LDD) and their carers.
- Help young people express their choices and for carers and professionals to listen.
- Improve understanding of the local offer and the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
