What is Creative Arts Therapy?
Creative Arts Therapies are used in clinical practice to develop rapport between individuals and therapists, to provide a medium for expression to improve psychomotor and sensory impairments, and to increase interaction and communication. MarbleJam Kids Creative Arts Program uses these therapies with children with ASDs to target exactly what their challenges are: sensory integration disorders, motor planning deficits, communication disorders, and impairments with social interactions. MJKids Creative Arts Program creates a safe atmosphere where children explore new opportunities, develop common interests with peers, improve relationships, and grow with self-confidence. Just as with typical children, children with ASDs need to be given the opportunity to gain independence and be proud of their accomplishments. Creative Arts Therapies is that opportunity.
