Artism research program

What is this study about?

The aim of our Artism Art Therapy is to establish reliable and objective measurements of its positive effect on cognitive skills and communication skills in people with autism. We use Artism Art Therapy to measure how much art works would affect kids’ attention, reading comprehension, and learning habits. This study is also going to apply customized techniques to assess behavior and speech, where children aged 4 to 16 will be monitored over a year’s period.  The goal is to create a set of measures that can be used in clinical trials to determine which art works are best for which ASD kids and who will benefit the most from our art therapy as a treatment plan. 

How much time does it take?

Caregivers will complete a screening phone call and questionnaires about their children. Each enrolled family will complete a minimum of 12 group classes, private classes and parent training sessions of Artism program over a 12 month period. Each class takes 60 to 90 minutes depending on the content being taught. Ideally, caregivers should accompany their kids to perform follow-up practice for 10 minutes on a daily basis.

Who can be in the study?

We are currently recruiting children with a diagnosis of ASD between the ages of 4 to 16 years old.
