Young Rembrandts classes can help children who may have difficulty in traditional classroom settings by allowing them to participate without the pressures of socializing and giving them steps to follow. Look at the positive impact Young Rembrandts classes have had on this student with an autism spectrum disorder as written by his instructors.
“Ben, an 11-year-old boy with autism, first joined Young Rembrandts class in Southern California in 2013 when he was only 6 years old in a special small class size session so he could get the individual help he needed. At the beginning, Ben had a very difficult time sitting still and focusing. His mom made a small sign that read ‘sit and listen,’ which his teacher Ms. Becky used every time he got up. He gradually learned to follow directions and complete his work. He is now able to complete the project all by himself and his fine motor and imitation skills have improved a lot. After five years, he comes to class, say ‘Hello Ms. Becky,’ and complete a perfect drawing. His abilities have grown so much, his mom enrolled him in a large size, mainstream summer cartooning class, in which he did so well.” – Richard and Claudia Gonzales Young Rembrandts – East San Gabriel Valley, CA #YR30th
