THE CENTRE FOR THE ARTS IN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

Using creative arts therapies to change the lives of people with special needs

The Centre for the Arts in Human Development (CAHD) at Concordia University, established in 1996, is an educational, clinical and research centre serving adults with developmental disabilities, neurodiversity, and other special needs.

CAHD's New Francophone Program

The Centre is pleased to announce the opening of a new creative arts therapies program for francophone adults with an autism spectrum diagnosis or other developmental disagnosis. The program is funded by a generous donation from the Sandra and Alain Bouchard Foundation.

This will be a 2-year pilot project for 10 individuals. Each participant will receive a combination of art, music, dance/movement or drama therapy on Tuesdays and Thursdays, following the Concordia University academic schedule. The  first year of the program will start at the end of September 2022 until May 2023.

All inquiries can be made to cahd@concordia.ca.
