Art therapy specializes in using visual art making and the creative process to help clients bring about therapeutic change. It is typically referred for situations in which words are difficult or for clients who are inept with words (ex:children, persons with a communication disability). Art therapy is generally described as a highly illuminating, enjoyable, and unique experience. The common belief is that art making is beneficial to people (particularly children) with ASD due to their intense sensory needs (especially visual and tactile self-stimulation) and disregulation, often nonverbal nature, and need for more visual, concrete, hands-on therapies. After receiving specialized training in Art Therapy procedures by Volunteer art therapist Carolyn Krueger, the teachers at ACNS provide art therapy to pre primary school children.
