March to the Beat of Your Own Drum

This weekend I’ve had the pleasure of co-leading a drum circle for the Autism Tree Project Foundation’s NCL Girls Mentor Program. My co-intern, Noriah, and I facilitated various interventions involving non-verbal communication, socialization, direction following, and other attention related skills. These future female rock stars impressed me with their energy, spunk, and willingness to listen and learn from one another. The following infographic outlines the philosophy, approach, and techniques I have adopted over the past few months for leading drum circles.
