Lou Stein Studio will create work and develop skills to enable young performers with neurodiversity to enter the workplace as adults, bringing learned communication and presentation skills, through performance, with them.

Lou Stein Studio will be a space for developing those skills, learning to use them outside the context of performance, and will be a space for encouraging new conversations in the post-Covid world, where inclusiveness and diversity will be an important engine for society moving forward into a relevant and productive era.
