Michael Martin's parents recognized that he had abilities beyond his disability and enrolled him in Matheny Medical and Educational Center’s adult day program. Matheny is a special hospital and educational facility in Peapack, NJ, for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities. Arts Access enables people with disabilities to create fine art by having professional artists act as facilitators. Michael paints by responding “yes” or “no” to a facilitator.
