Creativity Group News

Here at Latham Centers we have a Creativity Group that meets monthly. Our individuals are given the opportunity to create something with their own hands. Working with people with complex special needs can be challenging because they cannot always verbally express their feelings. The Creativity Group gives them a way to express themselves through art. Art has always been a beneficial way for people to express themselves and in our group they can do it in a variety of different mediums.  Not only is it therapeutic for our individuals, it also gives them the freedom to create something from scratch they can be proud of when finished.
