Autism Ontario Windsor-Essex: Art Therapy (UNDER 12)

Art therapy is a distinct treatment for autism and can be an alleviating activity!

About this Event

Art therapy helps mitigate symptoms, while also channeling autistic behaviours 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

UNDER 12 classes will take place at the Autism Ontario Windsor office located at 1168 Drouillard Road. This program will run Saturday mornings 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM beginning January 18th, 2020 - March 7th, 2020.
