Art Therapy, Dance/Movement/Physical Therapy, Tutoring
Working closely with The Answer Inc. teachers, I was fortunate to join the team as a part of Adler University’s social justice practicum. The Answer Inc. is an autism awareness and support agency with a mission to empower parents of children and adults on the autism spectrum
The Answer Inc. has several programs contributing to the education of autistic students. For their Spectrum University program, I tutor students in reading, writing and mathematics to our students and started the program’s first arts and crafts class. I also participate in their Music N Me co-leading dance workouts and physical therapy.
Because the students vary in their cognitive and physical functionalities, I ensure the curriculum is personalized to meet each student’s needs. The arts and crafts projects are focused on exploring creative expression, exercising fine motor skills and introduces students to work with multiple types of art materials.
