DR. Maureen Del Giacco, Ph.D., LCAT has created a program for persons with many neurologically based cognitive deficits.. The program uses art therapy and cognitive rehabilitation. The program begins with 1-2 Hr assessments. These assessments will determine the development of an individual program designed to work with your specific needs.
Here is an article help you understand the program. https://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED513946.pdf
From a neurological perspective art therapy assists in brain development from the stimuli of using color line and design. However, it does not provide a true functional tool for overall cognitive functions. That is why I became a specialist in this area.
These tools then, provide a good venue to stimulate the process of neurogenesis. As science has found the right stimuli promotes plasticity or the growth of new pathways.
The Neuro Art Therapy mentioned here has been used around the world by trained professions who are graduate‘s of DR. Del Giacco’s training.
