my research.>>

Melissa -- what a great thesis idea! :-)
I teach regular and adapted art, and also use art therapy in my classroom.
(my course work emphasis in my masters degree was art therapy) I am very
interested in your project with kids with disabilities using the computer in
art class. If you need, I would be willing to help test your ideas with my
students. My adapted art kids range from severe physical disabilities to
severe behaviors w/out disabilities to mental disabilities to autism to
various combinations of all of the above. We are always game to try out
something new and collaborate with other professionals. Also, if you are
interested, I would be happy to share with you the therapeutic art education
units that I have developed in cooperation with our school counselor. We
team teach together in the art room and have presented several workshops on
our approach to therapeutic art education. There is always something new and
exciting out there! :-)
