Having a child with an autism diagnosis takes a lot of adjusting. So you could probably imagine (or maybe not) how much we have to adjust things around with having 3 autistic children.
One of my favorite forms of therapy is Art Therapy. Being able to use art as a positive outlet as well as learning experience is absolutely amazing.
I was recentely introduced to a new form of Art Therapy that absolutely blew me away! Imagine having everything you need to create, erase, and repeat with you all the time. The Chalk Wild Backpack is just that! Let’s check it out!
Chalk Wild- Art Therapy for Autism
The story of Chalk Wild is impressive to say the least. A young man who had an idea, worked with his father to bring it to life, and gives back to the organization that has taught him these skills. The story doesn’t end there, though! So how did it turn into Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy for Autism?
Originally, Chalk Wild was created for creative children. Along the way, Hein and his father began receiving feed back from special needs parents. These parents told them that their children just loved it and even asked for some special features. About this time, Hein’s father reached out to me to test the product.
From all the feedback they were receiving (mine included), they realized their product had a greater purpose. That is when they realized that this would work amazing as art therapy for autism, adhd, and anxiety. That is when Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy for Autism was truly born!
How does Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy work?
The wearable art therapy bag consist of a clear cover on a high quality bag. There are several models to choose from. All of them have this cover and come with eight different colored chalk markers.
Your child draws what ever design they want on their bag. It dries super quick and then they are off to school. It wipes off very easily with a paper towel and water. That way, they can create a new design whenever they want or need too.
