Art and Autism
Some remarkable art has come from people with autism of all levels. With art and music, many people with autism find it easier to express their feelings. They can communicate fluently what is hard for them to put into words. Another simple benefit is the development of fine motor skills. Working with playdoh and clay, for example, help strengthen the muscles used in handwriting.Some of our favorite art books are found below. What is special about these art books are the step by step visuals that are almost too good to be true! Just like a picture schedule for completing the project! Don't forget that to save your budget, try finding these titles a the local library.
