Draw, Drum & Dance: Leading-edge Adaptive Strategies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 705

While traditional art materials and tools work perfectly well in many therapeutic contexts, some populations and individuals are unable to make the most out of them due to issues such as grasp, sensory impact, emotional or cognitive challenges. In such cases, adaptive strategies can be utilized to help these individuals achieve independence and enhance their self-expression. In this workshop, participants will explore various adaptations across the arts, discovering the ways in which media, tools, and techniques can be adapted for different populations to cater to their specific needs.

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
