Introducing batik painting to special need children (autism) requires extra preparation for a simplified design. The objective is for the child to paint properly within their ability, so we hand-waxed special designs that have lesser and bigger segments instead of our regular designs that can be too complex for these special needs students.
It was such a joy to get positive feedback from the teacher with images of the completed pieces of batik painting. This is a parent project by Mr. Kamal who has an autistic son. We know that things we take for granted don’t come easy for some.
