Climbing Art Obstacles in Autism offers innovative ideas for teaching visual-motor skills to children with ASD and other developmental disorders through visually structured art activities. Containing step-by-step color photographs for approximately 50 art projects, this book combines educational and therapeutic goals with the process of creating art through the use of hand placement. The authors utilize visual systems based on Structured Teaching methodology, and this framework incorporates visual directions and specific art tools, which can help motivate students to replicate the visual representation of the art activity, and may also encourage them to engage in expressive, independent behavior. This framework helps to accomplish many individualized objectives found in a student's education or therapy plan, and it also allows children to engage in typical art projects tied to classroom themes. Written for students (and for the teachers and therapists who are assisting them), the book contains checklists to help students collect the necessary supplies for each project, and it also provides detachable pages for ease of use.
