Children with ASD and Special Needs

The Center for Contemporary Art’s year-round Art for Children with ASD and Special Needs class and summer art program provide needed access to creative art experiences for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other special needs. The arts provide an invaluable avenue of self-expression for children with limited or no verbal communication, and because of heightened sensory needs, they often respond well to the multi-sensory stimulation and the hands-on approach inherent in art.
