Autism & Arts Integration Workshops
Learning outcomes are evidenced through large and small group discussions and the ability to demonstrate and evaluate the activities that are taught during the workshop. The course objective is to provide participants with an understanding and working knowledge of the benefits of magic tricks in treatment.
The HEALING OF MAGIC workshop empowers the individuals with a valuable new tool to motivate their client, student or loved one to become more involved in their treatment. The workshop is a “hands-on, interactive learning experience.”
The applications of HEALING OF MAGIC address the entire spectrum to include developmental disabilities, mental health, physical disabilities, gerontology, and specific disease related deficits. The movements required to learn simple magic tricks help clients regain lost physical skills while increasing motivational levels and self esteem. In this form of therapy, a magic trick can be what leads an individual back to a functional life.
