In January 2007, Cindy Schneider opened
the doors to the Acting Antics Art Center
and ever since has been providing music
and theater programming for youngsters of
all ages and ability levels. Schneider's book,
Teens with Asperger Syndrome, was also
published that year.
ACTING ANTICS is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to providing socialization opportunities through theatre and music to those with a diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum and other social cognition needs.
A special educator by trade and an avid thespian, Cindy Schneider, experimented with offering theater workshops for youth on the autism spectrum and found them to be natural actors.
The response to initial theater workshops in the year 2000 was so positive that over the next several years she began to build a theater program specifically for children on the autism spectrum. She operated out of YMCAs, county recreation programs, or wherever she could find a space.
