This week bought about another good session at my workshop with a client on the autistic spectrum. My workshop sessions are person centred and tailored around the individual. I try and make my sessions on a one to one basis as so we can really focus on what activity my client really wants to do, what interests them in a craft workshop/art studio setting.


This time around "A". and I were focusing on shaped lens making as lenses hold a massive visual stimulation for him. So, lenses was the order of the day mainly, and we made three lenses and atached them to a neck chain for "A" to have with him out and about to inspect leaves etc.


We also repaired a dremmel and took apart a hair dryer for sculpture parts. More of that come next time.


Great session. Good fun had.

” … research demonstrates that autistic traits are distributed into the non-autistic population; some people have more of them, some have fewer. History suggests that many individuals whom we would today diagnose as autistic – some severely so – contributed profoundly to our art, our math, our science, and our literature. “
