What are the essential components to promote a student’s creativity and curiosity? During this one day conference, participants will understand how Floortime™ and the DIR® model can be used across the disciplinary domains with students of all ages.  Breakout sessions will address a range of themes including how curiosity and creativity develop through meaningful relationships across the developmental ladder. By cultivating curiosity and creativity, students are able to build a strong foundation necessary for productive learning and development in a shared world. Presenters from the Rebecca School, the self-advocacy and ICDL community will show how following a student’s passion can both build a strong relationship and accomplish discipline specific goals. This conference is open to self-advocates, professionals and parents.

Rebecca School Visits The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater!


What a great time the Rebecca School had visiting the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater’s Autism Friendly performance of The Princess, the emperor, and the Duck in Center Park on March 21st, 2017. The overall experience was wonderful and memorable for our students. This was all made possible by the thoughtfulness and preparation of the staff at the theater, the Parks Department, and Historic House Trust.

Accommodations included closer drop off site, dimmed lighting, and access to sensory space. We can’t wait to visit again!
