Here we share a video from RealLookAutism which demonstrates the use of Art Therapy as a tool in improving social interaction, vocabulary building, decision making skills, as well as fine and gross motor skills. Not every child is a “fit” for Art Therapy, but this young fellow certainly is engaged in the process.
 
Does you child gravitate towards any art form? DO you think it is important to offer children a variety of experiences in Art?
