This research study considers the idea that theatre can be used to help children with Autism with their social-emotional development. There has not been a lot of research conducted on this subject so when reviewing the literature, the topic must be considered from the perspectives of Autism, theatre, theatre-therapy, and theatre-therapy for children with Autism. The literature that has been reviewed has all supported the idea that theatre could be used to help children with Autism develop their social and emotional skills. A study was then conducted in which a group of students with Autism engaged in theatre games and activities and their social-emotional development was tracked, supporting the idea that theatre can be used to help these students.
