How Expressive Art Helps Autistic Children.
- “I have noticed that children with autism think in pictures,” according to art therapist Theresa Van Lith. “So it’s a natural progression, then, to use the visual arts to communicate what’s going on in their world.”
- Art therapy can help with social skills.
- Art therapy can address Sensory Processing Disorder.
- Drawing or doodling can be calming when stress or anxiety is overwhelming.
"The Chalk Wild erasable backpack is a great on-the-go resource for children who love to draw. Drawing can be very soothing and may help to ease feelings of anxiety or stress and help to regulate emotions. The backpack can be used as a canvas at any time, such as whilst waiting or on the train. This is very helpful for children who are always moving or have attention difficulties. I would recommend the Chalk Wild erasable backpack to parents and teachers!"
“Terrific idea. Don’t be surprised when it spreads to adults with briefcases on subways.”
“What a great idea! I will also get one for my granddaughter.”
Your child will appreciate it.
During a car ride, waiting at a doctor's office, going on a bus ride.... this unique backpack + markers will keep your child occupied and happy.
