How Art Helps People With Disabilities 






The arts are more than a fun, superficial way to keep kids occupied. Art activities can help children with learning disabilities begin to overcome the challenges they face in learning in many different ways. Of course, having a learning disability does not necessarily mean that a person has an exceptional artistic talent. However, music, art, crafts and dance can give students with learning disabilities a chance to express themselves through different media and gain confidence along the way.   




The arts bring children and teens with disabilities great joy and build high self-esteem. The arts might keep a disengaged student from dropping out of school—and help them to improve in academic areas.

The games seek for working different fields, such as orientation, sequencing, etc.These units will emphasize the game between two persons, may be involved both handicapped adults or parents. In this way, we enhance the interaction and peer learning. This role can also be ‘played’ by parents and educators.

 Each unit has activities with 3 levels of difficulty:  In level easy, you are going to recognise your goal on each board and to move the robot on the board. (Reading ability is not required. I could only present images of some objects.) In the level medium, you can use provided board or create your own.

        People respond to disabilities in different ways. Some react negatively and thus their quality of life is negatively affected. Others choose to focus on their abilities as opposed to their disabilities and continue to live a productive life. There are several factors that affect the impact a disability has on an individual.


These barriers contribute to the disadvantages experienced by people with disabilities, such as the following.


They have poor health outcomes. Depending on the group and setting, persons with disabilities may experience greater vulnerability to preventable secondary conditions and co-morbidities, untreated mental health conditions, poor oral health, higher rates of HIV infection, higher rates of obesity, and premature mortality.
They have lower educational achievements. Children with disabilities are less likely to start school than their peers without disabilities. They also have lower rates of staying …

The difference may be real or perceived, but the effect is substantial. The difference begins with the altered expectations of parents when they learn about the prospect of cognitive disabilities. 

      When one examines the characteristics of difference for an individual with an intellectual disability, one notes several components, all of which are to some extent dynamic.
