author highlights how to determine the level of relationship between the concept of disability in children, creative arts programmes and interventions and the extent creative arts therapy can help children with disabilities to heal, adjust, adapt, and be integrated into the society.

This book successfully demonstrated that indeed, artists are healers; therefore,

Art is Medicine
