HAPPY EASTER TO ALL MY READERS.
Ive also started a range of colouring books. My first one is Mindful Colouring.
Why is colouring beneficial to children with Autism?
Children with autism often struggle with fine motor skills and colouring can help to develop these.
Colouring encourages children to focus on a task for a set amount of time enabling mindfulness and being present.
Colouring is used in Colouring Therapy. I’ll talk more about that in another post.
Have a look at Colour Therapy on the mindfulcolouring.blog.
How does colouring help with Autism?
Autism is a life long neurological and developmental disorder that can impact a persons life. However it is manageable with a combination of therapies ranging from occupational therapy and sensory therapy.
In my quest to find out more about my son and his condition i have recently discovered colour therapy.
I am still researching this and have found some blogs which i would like to refer you to.
Have a look at Spectrumdisorder.com. The definition of colour therapy is as follows:
“Colour therapy is based on the knowledge that different colours evoke different emotions and responses”.
“Some colours are stimulating and others are soothing”.
“Colour therapy uses a combination of light and primary colours to treat mental health as well as physical ailments”.
I will be researching more about this therapy and will write a post about it soon.
For now i just want to say thank you to my readers and thank you for following and for the support with this blog so far.
As a thank you for following me and to wish you all a very happy Easter i have attached some free colouring sheets to the end of the post.
