Therapeutic art-making can be a useful tool to tap into their imaginations and help them to express their thoughts and feelings.

This book is packed with tips and suggestions for how to provide art therapy for children with autism, covering topics such as the basic materials required, safety issues, how to set up a workspace, and ideas for managing difficult behavior. The author writes from a professional and personal perspective. Nicole Martin is a qualified art therapist specializing in working with children with autism, and she also has a brother with autism.

Perfect for busy parents and as a practical reference for professionals such as psychologists, teachers, occupational therapists, sensory integration therapists and anyone working with a child on the autism spectrum.
