The Role of Music in the Special Education of Handicapped Children.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. for Handicapped Children.
Presented are approximately 25 instructional units in which learning about music is adapted for use in special education. Each unit contains a general educational goal, a series for behavior objectives designed to achieve the goal, and a number of learning experiences and accompanying resources intended to help children with particular types of handicaps experience music for purposes of learning about music itself, meeting certain physical, emotional, or psychological needs, and/or motivating and providing alternate ways of learning in other subject areas such as language arts. The learning experience section of each unit generally contains explicit, practical guidelines for the instructor to follow. Instructional units are provided for the following disability areas: emotionally disturbed, learning disabilities, brain injured, educable mentally retarded, trainable mentally retarded, communication disorders, blind, visually impaired, deaf and severely hard of hearing, and multiply handicapped. The instructional units are said to result from a conference on the role of music in the special education of handicapped children. (CB)
