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. 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 creativity that fuels the arts can be used to make learning accessible in the classroom, allow a child to express their feelings through song, give a teen an opportunity to make meaning of their world through story-telling and can elevate the voices of neurodivergent performers and speakers. Sharing this approach with schools, organizations, and the wider community sets the stage for neurodivergent people to shine in performance, school and everyday life.
