Event description

Description

Art therapy is a unique form of treatment for autism, as it helps mitigate symptoms, while also channeling autistic behaviors into an expressive, creative outlet. It promotes communication, emotional growth and sensory integration while also fostering social interaction in a fun setting.

Art is a natural language for children. It can help them make sense of and express their thoughts and feelings and improve coping. Through the process of creating art and working with an art therapist, a patient can:

  • Explore their feelings
  • Process emotional conflicts
  • Build self-awareness and increase self-esteem
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Use metaphor and symbolism to express themselves

This program will consist of mixing art and sensory activities in a fun and educational way. We welcome children of all ages and encourage siblings & friends to join in as well! We are requesting that parents/caretakers must be present for the duration of the class.

Classes will take place at the Autism Ontario Windsor office located at 1168 Drouillard Road. This program will run for 4 weeks on Wednesdays from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019
  • Wednesday, July 10th, 2019
  • Wednesday, July 17th, 2019
  • Wednesday, July 24th, 2019
