Music, art and dance as therapy for autism, more

Music, art and dance as therapy for autism, more | Expressive Arts | Scoop.it

At Therabilities Performing Arts Center, where Mingst can often be found singing a catchy children's tune, music is therapy. Launched in the spring by Lourdes Quinones, a physical therapist, the center also offers art and dance therapy classes to children with a wide range of physical and mental disabilities.

The group classes often resemble playtime more than therapy, but that's the point, Quinones said.

"We want to reach the child in a therapeutic way but in a nontherapy environment," she said.

Students, she said, don't realize that they are learning valuable school-readiness skills, such as how to raise their hands and wait in line.

Deborah Lange's curator insight, October 23, 2013 11:12 PM

Art, doodling, clay, mosaic, needle point... it does not matter what, is so important for gaining insight, emptying, accessing creativity, grace, peace, enjoyment .... so mcuh. So if you have forgotten what it was like to play through art - do something as simple as pick up some coloured pencils and draw. See what emerges in the moment!!
