Barbara Baum Freethy, M.Ed. is a private practice therapist in Portland, ME., working with children who are challenged by attention deficit and autism spectrum disorders. She frequently uses origami as an expressive therapy tool to enhance children’s self-esteem and creativity. Paper folding also has the added benefit of increasing learning skills such as sequencing, visual spatial perception, eye hand coordination and the ability to follow auditory and visual directions.
