Abstract (summary)

The Art Curriculum Guide for Special Needs consists of a curriculum model with specific references to categories of special education classes, sample lesson plans and rubrics, a fine motor skills checklist and individual assessment sheets. The curriculum is intended to provide a flexible lesson structure for latitudinal learning. It is divided into units based on a variety of mediums to facilitate sensori-motor stimulation and kinesthetic learning.

Each medium is presented within a grid that overlaps needs with differing levels of abilities. The breakdowns of classes are multiply handicapped, emotionally disturbed (and underprovided), developmentally delayed, and students with intensive behavior management needs. The Guide also provides a rationale and purpose for the learning, elements and principles of art emphasized in each unit, and other considerations such as developmental level, drawing development level, emotional level, and fine/gross motor skills for students with varying abilities.
