Other Peoples’ Say So

‘The Say So Drama group is very commendable activity session which encourages participants to build up their confidence and gently step outside their comfort zone from within a warm and non-threatening environment. The progress and development is rewarding to see at the end of term during the showcase performances. In some instances, where group members have been shy to present themselves at the beginning of term, great delight is demonstrated by them as they react to the appreciative applause of their admiring audience. Performing and presenting in front of a group of people can be daunting for anyone, so to observe the progress both in speech development and general confidence is heart-warming.’

‘I look forward to Drama, I find it fun. I like Emma, she is a friend of mine. I like to act in anything and look forward to the shows and performing in front of my mum and brother.’

‘I like coming to drama. I like the activities and catching the ball and everything like that. It keeps you fit and going.’

I have worked with Say So in a professional capacity for many years. The organisation is well structured to meet the needs of adults with learning disabilities. The day provision is well timed with routine for those who need it and has a committed team. The drama classes are energetic and involve people on a number of levels. Classes and plans are written to involve the individual goals and ideas of each adult and helps to develop social skills. I would encourage anybody considering it to have a taster session!
