Art therapy is provided to students in preschool through age 21 who qualify for art therapy services through a formal evaluation. Therapists use drawing assessments to determine a student’s emotional functioning, social and academic needs, areas of growth, and ability to engage with the materials. Based on the assessment, goals and objectives are established to meet the needs on the student’s IEP.
Students do not need any prior experience with art in order to benefit from art therapy. Services are contingent upon approval through the CPSE or CSE process.
