Product Packs for People with Learning Differences
Coloring may sound like a simple activity to ward off boredom, but for people with learning differences it can actually improve health by engaging the mind and sharpening fine motor skills and mental acuity.
Coloring a mandala (a circle design with geometric patterns) before a group activity has been shown* to increase an individual's attention span and decrease impulsive behavior, promoting better decision-making and focus.
A study* that paired academic assistance with weekly art therapy sessions found that the addition of art therapy contributed positively to the social-emotional adjustment of children with learning disabilities.
Coloring allows the mind to release worries which allows the student to concentrate on the coloring page.
