Stephen Flinn uses rhythms to teach academics and social skills to children, teens, and adults with intellectual and developmental differences using the Rhythmic Arts Project Protocol. (TRAP)
Stephen is a master trainer and facilitator of The Rhythmic Arts Project (TRAP) curriculum, and has over ten years experience working with special needs individuals. For the last four years (2010-2015), he taught at Lanterman High School in Los Angeles, which serves teens and adults with intellectual and physical differences. In addition, he has conducted three teacher trainings of the TRAP program at the Rich Center for Autism in Youngstown, Ohio. Stephen has given over 14,000 private lessons and has facilitated over 1,200 ensemble classes. He is also a professional percussionist (over 20 commercial releases) who has performed extensively throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States. Stephen has written numerous articles for Modern Drummer and Downbeat magazines, and just released his first book, “Contemporary Urban Percussion.” He is a graduate of Seattle University.
The rhythmic exercises are successful in addressing COGNITIVE, EMOTIONAL, and PHYSICAL goals, and teaches and enhances skills such as: maintaining focus, using memory, socialization, turn taking, sequencing, laterality, developing leadership, recognition and use of numbers, shapes and colors, spatial awareness, fine and gross motor coordination, following instructions, and communication. The ensembles occur in an environment that is SUPPORTIVE, COOPERATIVE and FUN, which develops confidence and a positive self-image.
