Art therapy

Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The creative process involved in expressing one’s self artistically can help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness. The therapy session is individual so that the children get all the attention they need to develop their own skills. As all the children are different, every therapy session is different.

Anushka came to SSDRC when she was 8 years. She was a sweet girl, with leg shortening and Autism.Her parents were very worried about Anushka. After her admission she started physio therapy sessions at SSDRC.combined with sensory activities and special education. She was very eager to learn but had concentration problems that made her forget easily what she had learned the previous day. Within a year after her admission she had improved a lot, gaining first position in sports and dance and second position in the curriculum of lower KG.She is no longer having physical disabilities. This improvement led to the decision to send her a normal school, her she is flourishing.
We had visited normal school (Namaste English School-Kadaghari -6, Kathmandu) last week where Anushka learning for follow up and talked about her improvement with teacher and found that she is doing well like normal children and she has got top fifth position with the competition of normal children in final examination and now learning grade one. After that we have gone to home visit and found that her parents were very happy and they appreciated us and did great hospitality like god. It made us very happy.
