Autism: All the Colors of the Spectrum

310


The special section on autism in the September issue of Los Angeles magazine lists more than 40 schools and programs for children with an autism spectrum disorder. Here, see artwork created by students of The Help Group, a collection of Los Angeles-area special-needs schools and the largest nonpublic provider of specialized education programs for children with an autism spectrum disorder in the United States. The nonprofit believes that the arts play an integral role in fostering students’ self-expression, self-discovery, creativity, and talent. These pieces were originally featured in the exhibition Through Our Eyes: A Celebration of Young Artists sponsored by Bear Givers at the James Gray Gallery in Santa Monica, and the Help Group is planning another exhibition at the gallery in March 2011.
