Some things that are so simple like looping a rubber band can be an impossible task for person with special needs. With the right method, nothing is impossible.
Engaging students with Autism in art activity is occupational and art therapy all in one. This is a video from our batik painting sessions this morning at a SPED school. We have included other fabric art forms into our extended batik painting programme, i.e. tie and dye. We also adjusted the techniques, adapting to different students capabilities. This simple looping of rubber band was a joyous success to us for we have empowered an individual to overcome just one of his many challenges.
