· The purpose of this study was to investigate whether art therapy can improve the communication skills of kindergarten students with autism. Art therapy was used on one of the autistic kindergarten student named Anna, studying in my language school. She had speech and language issues. Data was collected by observing and making notes in my personal journal about the gradual improvement in Anna’s communication skills after each art therapy session and by conducting informal interviews on an individual basis with Anna’s special education teacher, parents, art teacher and Anna to get a first-hand experience about the effect of art therapy. Before starting the therapy, Anna’s special education teacher, classroom teacher and mother were made to fill an initial survey form to fully understand her communication and sharing abilities. For much better results, it is suggested that art therapy be continued for a longer period.
