Meet Liz

Welcome to AND Action! I'm Liz McDonough, and for the last 17 years, I have helped hundreds of neurodivergent children, teens and young adults find their voices through drama, comedy improv, music and theatre. As a drama therapist and MFT, working in schools, I have collaborated with educators to make learning joyful, meaningful and accessible to all neurotypes by focusing on social-emotional growth. The beauty of having a differently wired brain is that you have something unique to offer and something extraordinary to express. My own neuro-differences have informed my creativity as a performer and clinician. I founded AND Action! because the same creativity that fuels the arts can bring a history lesson to life, allow a child to express their feelings through song, and enable a teen to make meaning of their world through story-telling. Sharing this drama-based cutting-edge approach with schools, organizations, and the wider community sets the stage for neurodivergent people to shine in performance, school and everyday life.
