Autism Arts: Level 1 : A drama syllabus for children on the autism spectrum Mixed media product
Autism Arts Level 1 is intended for use with low functioning autistic children and young people and focuses on the visual and auditory prompts, cues, tactile objects and the opportunity to learn through the freedom to explore.
Creative arts and drama-therapy are increasingly used to help people with special educational needs to explore, reflect and develop when linguistic ability or intellectual functioning restricts their self-expression.
Level 1 of the Autism Arts drama syllabus, for use by facilitators with and without drama experience, encourages children on the autistic spectrum to learn, interact and develop by integrating sights, sounds, touch and movement.
The aims and goals of Autism Arts Level 1 are basic and centre on using the body to develop self-awareness, spatial awareness and provide an outlet for feelings and energy.
Autism Arts Level 1 will also begin encouraging the use of the voice to express thoughts and feelings.
