NO LIMITS IS A PROGRAM DEVELOPED TO BRING THE ARTS TO KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS. ARTS FOR ALL CHILDREN IS A SPECIAL GIFT THAT ALLOWS THEM TO BE CREATIVE AND HAVE A VOICE ALL THEIR OWN. OUR GOAL IS TO PROVIDE A SAFE, COMFORTABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR STUDENTS TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES CREATIVELY.
CSUF partners with No Limits in an effort to design an effective and inclusive program. In this CSUF's Center for Autism has been able to provide peer training and evidence-based instructional support. This partnership has provided faculty and students of CSUF the opportunity to work collaboratively in a community based high impact practice.
Impact Dance Center helps provide a place where our No limits kids feel comfortable and included in an environment where they can learn their art like everyone else. Impact dance students get a chance to be mentors for the No Limits program and earn service hours if needed. Kids all participate in shows together for an all inclusive performance.
