Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Grant proposal for an art therapy program for adults with developmental disabilities
by Ha, Annie, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 87; 1523306
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop and seek funding for implementation of an art therapy program for adults with developmental disabilities in Orange County, California. The clients of Westview Services' adult day programs located in Orange County will have an opportunity to participate in the proposed art therapy program.

Through a review of the literature on the needs and challenges as well as current services and interventions in place for individuals with developmental disabilities, the grant writer proposed and designed an art therapy program. This grant writer explored potential public and private funding sources, which yielded the Field Initiated Projects through the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research as the funding source with the most potential fitting the goals and objectives of this project.

The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this academic project.
