Utilizing Art, Nature, and Animals in Therapeutic Practice with Childlren with ASD, ADHD, and Learning Differences

Therapeutic sessions should never take place solely in a classroom or treatment room. Increasingly, research validates and promotes the use of less traditional approaches to optimize outcomes for children and teens such as using expressive arts, nature, and animals. This unique, 2-hour webinar reviews ways that pediatric therapists can expand not only their therapeutic tools and perspectives, but also the worlds of children with ASD, ADHD, and learning challenges. Resources and strategies provide ways to bring these creative, out-of-the-box tools into daily work, no matter the therapeutic setting.

  1. List the benefits of incorporating animals into your therapy sessions with children and teens.
  2. Identify three types of nature-based therapies applicable to occupational therapy.
  3. State the positive neurological and physiological effects of using expressive arts as a therapeutic tool.
