Abstract
 
Description
This book presents a basic introduction to the value of artistic activity for all people. It presents a brief introduction to different kinds of artistic expression and then focuses on drama and theatre experience. In this book, we propose that drama and the creative arts are potential components of healthy personal and social development for all members of society, including people with Down syndrome. Traditionally, people with Down syndrome, like many other people with a disability, have been limited in their exposure to, and participation in drama and the other creative arts. Most of this limited exposure has come within the context of education and therapy, particularly for children with Down syndrome. This book will focus instead on the options and resources available to adults with Down syndrome, and their families and caregivers, who wish to engage in creative and artistic activities, especially in the area of drama and theatre. - from Amzon
