Background on amplifiTM
amplifi (formerly Reach 4 Real) is the nation’s first-ever provider of educational music and performance based extended learning programs designed specifically for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The goal of amplifi is two-fold: (i) enrich the lives of people with needs through learner-centered music and theater experiences, while (ii) closely tying course content to reinforce and accelerate learning and mastery of select educational criteria – from recreational topics to rigorous academic requirements and grade-space expectations.
Unlike adaptive sports or music therapy, amplifi programming is first and foremost educational. Yet, our programs do have both recreational and therapeutic attributes that are an inevitable byproduct of amplifying the voices of those with needs. In short, we don’t give our students a voice, we give them a microphone. By allowing people with special needs to create and perform educationally-based adaptive music productions, students gain an often-rare opportunity to express themselves, and this expression leads to individual empowerment, as well as accelerated educational outcomes.
