Interdisciplinary Study of Creativity and Behavior: Special Child Development.
Musick, Patricia L.
A study involving eight mentally retarded, multiply handicapped preschool children was conducted to determine whether atypical retarded children could develop their visual spatial and creative expressions to a level which exceeded their deficient curricular level. A base line level of creative ability was obtained for each S and college students participated in a creative arts program on a one-to-one basis with Ss. Data collection consisted of pre and post program drawings, videotapes of children's creative behavior, and questionnaire responses from student teachers. Although one child had to be dropped due to chronic illness, three children showed normal development and three showed remarkable development. One profoundly retarded child failed to develop. (SBH)
