Since the first edition of this book there has been an enormous shift in attitudes toward children with disabilities and a tremendous explosion of information about children, art, art therapy, art education and special education. There is a growing acceptance of the use of art to remediate learning and social problems, to facilitate growth, development and expression in all of us no matter our age or disability. This second edition is for art therapists in training and for in-service professionals in art therapy, art education and special education who have children with disabilities as a part of their case/class load. The book is based on the author's three decades of work with children with visual impairments, hearing impairments, physical disabilities, mental retardation, learning disabilities and behavior disorders/emotional disturbance. A major goal of this edition is to show the many ways that art can be adapted so that ALL children (with or without disabilities) may have a meaningful encounter with art. The book will prepare the reader to understand children, their art, their disabilities and how to adapt art to meet their needs.
