NAEA Releases New Resource


Beverly Levett Gerber and Doris M. Guay, Editors.

This book is written for art teachers and those who value the arts for
students with special needs. It provides an overview of special needs
students in
the art room.

Special needs groups are addressed separately and include current definitions
and descriptions and recommended teaching strategies. In addition, art lesson
adaptations and behavior management strategies are included.

Follow-up activities are provided at the end of each chapter to gain further
insights into each group of students. It also addresses school-wide concerns:
collaboration among teachers and school staff; art therapy and therapeutic
teaching; paraeducators in the art room; and resources for the arts for special
needs students.

Readers are also given step-by-step directions in order to obtain funding to
expand their own teaching opportunities.
