Photo therapy helps autistic adults blossom

The “InFocus Project” helps autistic adults develop self-expression and social skills as they photograph the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C.

Autistic adults Brian D., bottom, and James L., above, edit their photographs of the Cherry Blossoms taken along the Tidal Basin with the help of staff member Craig Pardini, right, at a computer lab at the Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children, Montgomery Village, Md., Thursday, March 22, 2012. The two are a part of the “InFocus Project†which helps adults with autism to develop forms of self expression and social skills while producing work that has been featured in art shows, given to donors to C.S.A.A.C., and sold on an online store.
