    Understanding Disabilities through Children's Art
    On Display through June 2, 2013

    Understanding Disabilities through Children's Art This art exhibit consisting of thirteen pieces was produced by faculty and students of the Baylor School of Social Work with assistance from VSA Texas, The international Organization on Arts and Disability. The exhibit includes colorful and creative artwork from children around the state of Texas who live with mental, learning or physical challenges, such as ADHD, deafness, dyslexia and autism. Interactive elements in the exhibit include thought-provoking words by the artists as well as a discussion booklet for parents to use to discuss physical and mental health disabilities with their own children. Baylor School of Social Work hopes it creates an opportunity to decrease the stigma children that are differently abled experience.
