An online illustration class for children who are concerned about their development, “Children’s Design”, opened by the Developmental Uneven Association (location: Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Representative Director: Maho Ito), which provides support for parents with developmental disabilities and gray zones. Academy’. Two months after the opening of the course, we have received many positive comments from parents.
■ “Children’s Design Academy”
A place to build self-confidence from what you love
Since her second son with autism spectrum disorder was 3 years old, Maho Ito, the representative director of the Developmental Defective Association, has been active with the theme of “Mom supports mom”. My second son has grown up, and from now on, I want to shine a light on what children like, not just mothers, so I started the “Children’s Design Academy”.
Two months have passed since the course started on Sunday, September 4, and we have received many happy voices from parents.
“I usually don’t prepare anything, but when it’s time, I prepare myself and stand by.”
“I’m happy that I applied what I learned at school and it went well! I feel that what I learned here is connected to many things.”
“It was all stick figures, but I’ve definitely improved in a month, and I can see that he’s gained confidence.”
Looking at the feedback from the parents and the children, I feel that this classroom is “a place where you can gain confidence in yourself through your favorite illustrations.”
The teacher’s praise is specific and leads to confidence
The instructor is a professional illustrator who is active on the front lines and has an understanding of developmental disorders. Such teachers will bring out the best parts of your child from a professional perspective.
・Make sure to follow the teacher’s example and draw
・Looking at the traces of the eraser and redrawing many times to draw what I want to draw
Instead of evaluating the work, I praise the child specifically by looking at where they worked hard.
This “Illustration of a girl wearing earphones”
If a child shows this to a parent, they may only be praised as saying, “You draw well.”
However, from a professional illustrator’s point of view, “a girl wearing earphones and listening to music” was able to draw while thinking about what she was doing.
It is very important to think about what the person is doing, what the person is thinking, and what kind of expression they have, rather than whether they are good or bad at drawing. It’s great that you were able to express that! was praised by the teacher.
The child looked a little embarrassed, but I could see through the screen that he was happy to have been praised by the teacher. “I thought that the teacher’s way of praising and the relationship was good for rehabilitation.”
“The teacher praised me for the fine details, and as a parent, I realized that I hadn’t paid attention to the small things like this.” I also received this kind of impression from my parents.
The experience of being praised for hard work and being recognized builds a foundation for children’s minds.
There is a place in the “Children’s Design Academy” where you can receive praise from a third party other than your parents.
It’s okay if you can’t show your face or talk about yourself well It may be quite difficult at first to appear on the screen and talk about yourself.
A child whose mother sits next to her, a child who was off the screen at first but gradually became able to show his face. The child who has become…
Everyone participates at their own pace.
Little by little, you can see the emotional connection between children, such as a child who is interested in the drawing of a child in the same class, a child who praises by clapping his hands, a child who praises a child who cannot show his face by chatting. It’s starting to look like this.
Even if you think you’ve gotten used to it, there may be days when you can’t speak or show your face depending on the condition of the day. It’s okay though.
The teacher is calling out to each and every one of them so that they can participate without difficulty.
Correction from a teacher who understands the child’s growth I will learn so that I can master one theme in four times a month. It’s okay if you drop out or take a break in the middle because you’ll be reviewing each time and progressing slowly.
For example, if it is “how to draw people”, we will proceed in such a flow. [Image 3
Of course, while there is a flow as a whole, the voice is also solid so that each child can draw at their own pace.
Then, once a month, after the 4th lesson, we will paste the images of the month and give you the correction comments from the instructor as data.
You can keep a record of your child’s growth.
The growth of the children is also transmitted from the comments of the lecturer.
“Since the teacher is kindly instructing me, it seems that he is enjoying himself as he is getting better little by little.
When I’m drawing at home, I say, “I’ll show it to my teacher in class.” ” “I was originally not interested in drawing, but I think I gained confidence through learning, and I am actively drawing and I am enjoying it very much. I feel that.”
I’ve heard this from parents as well.
Enrollment fee / tuition fee free campaign in progress
When I was a child, I was absorbed in what I liked, and I was recognized for my hard work, and I thought that there was something I could do…
By accumulating a lot of such experiences, I want them to grow up to be people who believe in their own strength and can always love themselves, even if things get a little tough when they grow up. This is the classroom that was made with such a feeling.
We specialize in children with developmental disorders and gray zones, so you don’t have to worry about other parents or teachers, and you don’t have to explain your child’s characteristics.
We want to make it a place where children can enjoy themselves and where parents can participate without hesitation.
Those who need a place to be recognized by a third party other than their parents, those who want to build confidence in their children, those who want to develop what they like, those who just want to see their children having fun…・
