Individuals with Autism
While many can fall under the diagnosis of ASD no one individual is the same. Their neurological makeups vary and thus so do their symptoms. Some have fully developed speech patterns but cannot pick up on social cues; others may be rather interactive but lack productive verbalization. Certain individuals are even affected by seizures. Autism, like all disorders, is multifactorial and many of its aspects are relevant and present in other disorders. Individuals affected by ASD should be given the opportunity to access a variety of resources in order to have a truly individualized and all-encompassing treatment approach.
Ottawa Art Therapy provides the needed creative outlet to address a variety of symptoms of ASD. For more information on the service provided please go to the Services section.
