Wings to Fly
In honor of National Therapeutic Recreation Week, Sally Dorothy Bailey's Wings to Fly: Bringing Theatre Arts to Students with Special Needs is now on display at CeDIR. The first few chapters of this book introduce descriptions of various physical and cognitive disabilities, then adaptations needed for teaching school-age children with special needs. Readers will find that theatre arts help students improve their communication skills and confidence, work in teams, and express themselves. Issues such as mainstreaming, working with teachers, and incorporating other subjects into drama are also covered. Visit CeDIR today to check out this interesting book, or visit worldcat.org to find it at a library near you.
