Back Cover

Creative Arts Therapies for Autistic Children presents global experiences and research data on the systematic use of creative arts mediators in a therapeutic context, to assist the child with autism. This book underscores the efficacy of arts therapies in developing social functioning and social information processing in autistic children. As a scientific guide, this helps the responsible care-giver to plan and implement creative activities, to enrich the autist’s imagination, expression and creativity. The clinical rebellion, to reverse autism, is wholly embraced in this document.

Creative Arts Therapies for Autistic Children is a source book for the clinicians, teachers and parents who are interested in rethinking the way they work with autistic children.
