Discover the benefits of this invaluable resource for teachers of those with Autism, Special Education and Exceptional Needs Educators, and Parents of the students. The power of this visual learning approach blends the Principles of Special Needs education and the Visual Arts to impact and support those on the Autism Spectrum Disorder Spectrum and beyond.
Learning Life Skills through the Visual Arts is perhaps one of the best ways as it is experiential, hands-on learning with an emphasis on the visual. This improves much needed skill and impacts the synthesizing of information and cognition on multiple levels.

Foundational instructional elements from an Interdisciplinary approach are included, such as: a multitude of visual examples and extensive definitions of the Elements and Principles of Design, how to start building an art cabinet from scratch using a myriad of supplies, step-by-step directions as to how to begin designing and implementing an art curriculum on its own or to supplement the current curriculum within existing time constraints, evaluation procedures, and multiple means of assessment in a variety of formats. This student-centered information focuses on individual development concerns including learning styles and sensitivities. Effective teaching strategies and practical suggestions for helping students achieve their maximum throughout long and short term goals.
The best feature of this book however, is the 100 concise user-friendly lessons which are presented so that any one can teach them with success with no art experience or talent necessary. This invaluable resource is an asset which can be used year after year as students grow.
