Capstone Project (Campus-Only Access)
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
The visual and performing arts have a considerable amount of benefits to offer various educational populations. Specifically for students who are receiving special education services, the arts can potentially have a significant impact. However, for reasons such as budget cuts and lack of resources, the arts are being eliminated from many schools and classrooms. This senior capstone examines the ways in which the visual and performing arts could enhance the development and academic performance of students who receive special education services. Through the use of literature review, parent and teacher surveys, and parent and teacher interviews, the results support the notion that the visual and performing arts could enhance both the development and academic performance of students receiving special education services while simultaneously preparing them for independent experiences.
