This article draws upon an enquiry based, partnership project between a special school and Shysters Theatre Company, an ensemble of actors with learning disabilities. The project, entitled The Butterfly Effect sought to explore how this model of theatre practice can influence learning and teaching. A key question has been to understand why the exploration of the physical, sensory and essentially non-verbal interactions has led to the significant development of a range of key personal and social skills and abilities within the children, including ironically an increased use of words as a means of communication.
