Children with language-based learning disabilities such as Dyslexia, who may find it difficult to communicate effectively through reading, writing, or spelling are often able to creatively express themselves through art. Creative activities such as drawing, painting, and sculpting provide room for unique expression, without the need or pressure for generating written and verbal communication.
Creating art can be very stimulating for the brain, as it sparks curiosity and relies heavily on using the imagination. Choosing between different painting tools, colors, and styles can be exciting for a child. There is no right or wrong answer in the art classroom, which helps students who struggle in traditional academic subjects.
