SHENANIGANS, our flagship program, is about communication - relating - flexible thinking - being open to new ideas - adapting to change - understanding context - having fun and making friends. We use the techniques of improvisational theater to practice games and exercises that address the social challenges and rigid thinking of Asperger’s and other mild-to-moderate autism spectrum and related conditions.
BREAKING NEWS! INTRODUCING AUTISM IMPROVISED!
We're starting off our new life as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a new corporate name: Autism Improvised. We thought this would be a good time to redefine ourselves a bit and introduce a name for our organization that better reflects our expanding focus and programs. Shenanigans, Code Breakers, and Girl Talk are all now nestled happily under the the wings of Autism Improvised. (Buh-bye Spectrum Arts.)
Our new web site is under construction.
Our 2-week summer theater camp for teens and young adults is now open for registration!
We have received our exempt status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit! We hope that, with your support, we can build a scholarship fund to allow more people to benefit from our programs, and we can grow a stronger organization for the long term. If you'd like to be a part of our success, please click on the Donate button on the left.
Our weekly classes are held at locations around metro Atlanta and continue throughout the year. We also partner with service organizations and schools to bring our classes to even more children and adults.
Want to see Shenanigans, Code Breakers, and Girl Talk in your area? We're always looking for new opportunities to bring our activities to more neighborhoods.

Shenanigans is excited to be a production partner in this project written and directed by Jesse Cramer. Circles authentically showcases a day in the life of individuals with autism, without any of the stereotypes and melodrama often portrayed in popular culture and cinema. With a neurodiverse cast and crew, including over 80% with autism, we believe the concept is groundbreaking in furthering autism understanding and acceptance.

The short will be submitted to prominent film festivals in anticipation of a feature-length project that will follow the same concept.
Now that the filming is finished, we still need funding for post-production and film festival submissions. If you're interested in helping out, please contact us.
