Youth Drama For All plans to use new technology to help young special-needs performers express themselves, leveraging a $3,000 grant from the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation to expand the organization’s resources.

While new teleprompters may aid actors who can’t memorize lines, iPads will enable performers to work with the latest version of scripts, which are updated frequently to respond to individual actors’ passions and abilities.
