Art Therapy for Children with Special Needs


Children with developmental disabilities may find it difficult to express how they feel where other people may misunderstand their behavior. Hence, this can be frustrating and upsetting for them. One way effective way to remedy this situation is engaging them in arts. Through art therapy, they can freely express their feelings, especially for individuals with special needs and/or with speech, language, or motor problems.

Among its benefits include:

  • Nurtures their creativeness and strengthens their cognitive and physical skills
  • Improves their self-confidence and communication with others
  • Allows them to have calmer emotions and to have fun!
