Subjects: Asperger syndrome, children, free drawings
Free drawings of children with AS, aged 7-16 years, were analysed in relation to the clinical picture comprising their difficulties in communication, social behaviour and cognition. All children showed good abilities in drawing. Pictures had some common traits and were distinctly original, reflecting peculiarities of the syndrome features. Analysis of free drawings was found to be a helpful tool in understanding the inner world and the dynamic changes during the therapy process of these children.(Int J Circumpolar Health 2002; 61 suppl 2:90-96)Keywords: Asperger syndrome, children, free drawings
