About the Author
Amelia Davies received her Bachelor's of Fine Arts from Boston Conservatory, and her Master's of Fine Arts in acting from Brandeis University. She then made her living for many years as an actress, director, and producer, including a national tour with the Missoula Children's Theatre. Drawing both on her background in theatre and on her experience working with adults and children with autism, Amelia has developed a fun, easy-to-follow, step-by-step drama curriculum specifically for parents and professionals without backgrounds in acting.
