Creativity in Art with the Retarded.
Shaughnessy, Michael F.; Tevelowitz, Neil
Creative Child and Adult Quarterly, v6 n3 p141-46 Fall 1981
The authors examine why the attribution of "giftedness,""talent," or "creativeness" to the mentally retarded has been neglected, review definitions applicable to this group, examine the therapeutic effects of various types of art work (work which could be attributed as "gifted",) and suggest techniques to encourage creativity in the mentally retarded.
