As the authors of this study note, classrooms must provide students with mental retardation with an enviroment that is motivationally stimulating and emotionally safe. This study provides evidence that drama can serve as a mechanism to increase interaction among students

There are compelling humanistic, demographic, aesthetic and economic reasons to move in this direction. By doing so, philanthropy can shape a more inclusive and dynamic cultural sector, as well as a more equitable, fair and democratic world.
