In many parts of the world, clay modeling is being used as a form of therapy. Most children on the spectrum find it difficult to focus on one thing at a time; and by using clay, they are able to build and develop their focus and lengthen their attention span. Also, clay gives them the opportunity to be creative and learn about texture, shape, form and even colors and smells – while having lots of fun!

This ASP PueDay event, in partnership with La Maison B, will allow young learners on the spectrum to explore:
• How to make clay at home using natural ingredients
• How to make basic shapes with clay
• How to explore different textures, colors and smells using clay
