Art, in its many forms, is the least threatening and personalized activity found to help individuals communicate and express themselves. Art therapy allows one to express themselves without relying on verbal language. It is a welcoming form of expression that helps individuals communicate and gain greater insight into their needs, challenges, and strengths.
mindfulness & yoga
Yoga and mindfulness, historically proven practices, help individuals connect to their minds and bodies, improving self-regulation, attention, and awareness of one's self and needs. It allows for stretching, exertion, and quiet focus on one’s physical and mental self. Like art, there is no incorrect yoga or meditation; there is only the individual’s version.
Saad Art therapy offers private sessions for children and young adolescents. The services are tailored to address each client's needs.
Therapeutic tutoring is Sophia's approach to reading and academic support. It is a combination of Orton Gillingham-based reading support with a segment of art therapy to address the whole child; their reading development and academic esteem. Using the Orton Gillingham approach, clients are provided with a structured, sequential method for reading development. Being in the special education field for over 10 years, Sophia understands that each child learns in their own way, which is why other multisensory programs, such as Sounds in Motions are utilized. In addition, the art therapy activities promote academic confidence, regulation, and cognitive strategies.
