Children of all ages, nationalities, races and cultures can benefit from art therapy. Programs are developed around a child’s strengths and abilities, so the kid can use the medium even if he or she has never picked up a crayon before.
The Adell Foundation also has a summer program for youth and adults with special needs. Art workshops that focuses on a child with special needs gaining new skills while limiting environmental distractions and unproductive behavior. Students will learn to achieve new goals through action-based, dynamic educational principals and experience how important effort is over actual ability. This is the difference between the process of making art and the progress of the art, and can help a child feel confident in their own abilities while teaching them appropriate actions and behaviors.
