Arte en la Clase para Personas Incapacitadas (Art in the Classroom for Handicapped Persons).
National Committee, Arts for the Handicapped, Washington, DC.
The Spanish translation contains a collection of arts strategies intended to stimulate, motivate, and teach basic skills to handicapped children. The lessons involve one or more of the basic art forms (movement, music, drama, and art) and are further divided into five levels of aesthetic development: awareness, imitation, self-initiation, skill development, and critical objectives. Lessons focus on teaching objectives in the basic learning abilities of gross motor development, sensory motor integration, perceptual motor integration, language development, conceptual skills, and social skills. Activity ideas are intended to be flexible and to allow for integrating handicapped and nonhandicapped students. (Author/CL)
