QUESTION:

Many children with special needs spend at least part of the school day in special education classrooms, where they receive special instruction, sometimes quite didactic, adapted to their unique needs (Hendrick & and Weissman, 2007). The open-endedness and process orientation of art can serve as a reprieve from the highly focused tasks often used in special education. Imagine that you are in an early childhood education setting, and you are the lead art teacher. Using this information, determine how you would create a curriculum in art that accommodates diverse learners.

Part 1: Explain why it is important to have a curriculum in art that accommodates diverse learners.

Part 2: Provide an example of an activity for children with each of the following:

a. Emotional and intellectual challenges

b. Visual impairments

c. Hearing impairments

d. Orthopedic impairments
