Together we worked out a visual language, taking it in turns to make our marks on the same piece of paper with the same shapes as each other. This created our own way of connecting with each other. The process has given him new skills, a calmer way of being in a group and a sense of fulfillment as now he is creating patterns, shapes and literal pictures. when invited to paint independently this week he produced contained shapes with a selection of colours.
He is happier now to play and interact with the other people in the session.
