Many children in primary schools who are defined as having special needs have difficulties in the acquisition and development of literacy skills. Teachers face the dilemma of how to achieve a balance between developing basic skills on the one hand and ensuring breadth of curriculum on the other. In this book the authors show how the education of children with learning difficulties can be enriched and improved through creative self-expression. The areas of art, creative writing, drama, music, oracy and physical education, including dance, are covered in detail. Examples are given from classroom practice as well as consideration of the implications of changes to the National Curriculum. The book will be of particular interest and practical value to teachers in mainstream classrooms and special needs settings, as well as to teachers in training, school governors and parents.
