We conduct One to One Speech and Drama classes for children and adults find themselves a little shy in social situations and would love to come out of their shell and express themselves more. We also love to work with those with autism, Down Syndrome and other special needs. These sessions are specialised to the requirements of the individual.
The objective is to increase the person's confidence, social skills and most importantly to have lots of fun!
Lessons include poetry, articulation exercises, relaxation exercises, emotions work, Improvisation, Role play, games, storytelling, Mime and much more.
Speech and Drama is an invaluable tool in helping to build trust and develop interpersonal relationships. It is also instrumental in enhancing skills of interaction and imaginative thinking. Improvisation is invaluable is helping to navigate unexpected changes and social situations.
Before arranging a session, we ask parents/guardians some questions about their child's ability so we can cater the classes to their specific needs and goals. Each session is forty minutes long and takes place in the client's home or from a studio in Galway city.
We also run a weekly drama class in Galway city for a small group of children where we focus on drawing out their skills and reminding them of how wonderful they already are! Michelle also teaches Speech and Drama in primary schools in the Galway area.
There is no problem if you have to cancel or reschedule. However, I do charge half the session's fee if you cancel/reschedule within twenty four hours of your scheduled session as that would not be sufficient notice to give the slot to another client.
At Réalta we believe there is no such thing as a silly question and we know how difficult it can be to take that first step in getting in touch, especially when it's about someone so important to you.
