Art Based Therapy


Rhymes and Movements

Engaging in rhymes and movements within our artistic activities fosters a range of sensory experiences that are not only positive but also deeply pleasurable. These sensory engagements open a doorway for our students to explore and interact with their surroundings in unique ways, offering rich opportunities for learning and expression.

The creative process is a remarkable tool, one that allows these special children to articulate their thoughts, emotions, and ideas, even those that might be challenging to express through conventional means. For children with disabilities, this avenue provides a vital space for communication, offering a bridge between their inner worlds and the external environment.


Dance holds a special place at KPA, and we embrace both structured and free-form styles, each offering its unique benefits. The freedom of expression inherent in free-form dancing encourages creativity and self-expression, fostering a sense of individuality and exploration among our students.

More than just a captivating art form, dance serves as a powerful therapy tool. It aids in the development of both gross and fine motor skills, allowing our students to enhance their physical abilities through activities like spinning, jumping, hopping, and tiptoeing. Even our youngest learners experience the joy of dance through action songs like "Put your right hand in..." that not only entertain but also lay the foundation for motor skill development.



Rhythm is a captivating element of our movement-based activities at KPA, offering an engaging way to motivate and stimulate children. Through these activities, kids learn to interact with music, clapping and playing instruments in harmony with the beat. The power of rhythm extends beyond music – it helps children establish routines, enabling them to predict and anticipate movements and activities.

During our practice sessions, we harness the rhythm's transformative effect to initiate start-and-stop movement activities. This technique, often referred to as "freeze dance," captivates children's attention and fosters an innate sense of rhythm and timing. Rhythm is not just about music; it's a vital element of our holistic approach to nurturing the physical, emotional, and cognitive development of every child.


Incorporating props like a large parachute into our activities adds an exciting dimension to our movement programs. This prop ignites the enthusiasm of large groups, inviting them to engage in exhilarating activities like lifting the parachute up and down. Additionally, placing small, colorful balls on top of the parachute creates a delightful bouncing effect, further stimulating the children's motivation and energy.

The interactive nature of these activities encourages the children to actively participate, as they eagerly run to retrieve the bouncing balls. This not only fosters a sense of shared enjoyment but also promotes cooperative play. To elevate the fun quotient, we often accompany these activities with lively, upbeat tunes. It's all about making movement an enjoyable and enriching experience at KPA.
