Art is a great way to express one’s feelings. There are many different mediums and endless possibilities. When a child has ADHD, they may have difficulty remaining on task, exhibit a lot of energy, or have so many thoughts at once. Art therapy is a great way to help understand how they approach problems and provide a way for them to communicate their inner thoughts and feelings. By giving the child the opportunity to explain their work, you are working on communication skills, problem-solving skills, and mental flexibility. Art is a great way to take a break from the screens, a great way to focus on the moment, and a great way to connect with yourself within.
