Systematic intervention strategies that treat the whole you.
Art Therapy and...
Central to autistic spectrum disorders is difficulty with verbal and social communication. Some may be totally unable to speak or to process language. Many struggle to read faces. Others have an extraordinary ability to think visually.
When used in conjunction with standard treatment protocols, art therapies can open doors to alternate ways of communicating while building unique opportunities for bonding. They can help to improve motor skills, manage sensory sensitivities, build social skills, and increase the capacity for symbolic thinking.
An inability to communicate too often leads to an assumption of incompetence in other areas. For those who struggle with the challenges and strengths associated with autism, exposure to art media can lead to a chance at excellence... at any age.
