With the proper motivation a person with special needs can form images in his mind. By using his hands, his eyes, his feelings, he is able to synchronize his senses to show them on paper or clay. He undergoes what we call the creative process. This process allows him, nay, gives him the chance to imagine, to choose, to plan, to innovate, to express himself without words. In so doing- the process becomes joyful and emotionally satisfying. It becomes therapeutic.
