School Planning & Management — ARTICLE ARCHIVE What is music therapy? Music therapy is a multi-sensory experience whereby music is used for therapeutic results. A student visually connects with the shiny, brightly colored instruments; he or she hears a sound of the music; he or she experiences a feeling of holding the instrument; and he or she feels the vibration or movement of the instrument. It has been determined that music can influence a student’s behavior by affecting the brain through sound and thereby impact other bodily structures. These effects are visible, identifiable and measurable, and are the basis for music therapy. When did music therapy begin as a profession?

La notion de "scolarisation des élèves à besoins éducatifs spécifiques" est récente. Elle recouvre une population d'élèves très diversifiée : handicaps physiques, sensoriels, mentaux ; grandes difficultés d'apprentissage ou d'adaptation ; enfants intellectuellement précoces ; enfants malades ; enfants en situation familiale ou sociale difficile ; mineurs en milieu carcéral ; élèves nouvellement arrivés en France ; enfants du voyage… Les prises en charge par l'institution scolaire sont elles-mêmes diverses et évolutives. Certains thèmes et structures sont développés dans des fiches spécifiques. 1 – Adapter l'offre éducative à la diversité des élèves et individualiser leur parcours scolaire C'est le défi pour réussir la scolarisation du maximum d'élèves en établissement public local d'enseignement (EPLE), conformément à la loi.
Child with Asperger's syndrome 'flourishes' at Town and Country School, mom says - BALedger.com: Education Of the seven kids in the classroom that day, only two sat at their desks. Another two stood at their desks, one was in the back of the room with the teacher's aide and one walked around the classroom as he talked to his teacher. And the seventh student? He sat under a desk, talking himself into coming out for "the interview." "I'm just a little nervous," said Trent Kimery, 8, whose mother and teachers had prepared him ahead of time that he would be interviewed that day. The preparation helped, but didn't eliminate all his apprehension.

Une école évolutive invite la nature en milieu urbain (diaporama) A l’heure où l’on voit fleurir des chantiers de cités universitaires, hôtels ou encore des chapelles en conteneurs, pas moins de 706 étudiants en architecture de 17 pays se sont essayés à créer une école à partir d’une autre structure modulaire : le module Algeco. L’industriel a remis jeudi les prix de la troisième édition de son concours, Architecture(s) élémentaire(s), sous le thème de «l’école évolutive». Il s’agissait de concevoir, en zone urbaine, un projet d’école moderne à partir d’un module industrialisé Algeco de la gamme Progress, sur l’une des deux parcelles proposées en Ile-de-France, de 27.339 m2 et 1.864 m2.
Designing for disabled children and children with special educational needs means putting these children at the very heart of the design and build process, right from inception. This will help ensure not only access and participation but also inspirational school environments. A recent publication from the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) draws together guidance on designing ‘inclusive’ school environments. It stresses that there is a wide range of special educational need and no one design solution to support these children. So it’s vital that approaches are developed carefully, in close consultation with stakeholders from the word go. Only by talking to teachers, specialists, parents, carers and the children themselves – and incorporating their expertise and experience - can a good quality, detailed brief be developed, which will help turn bricks and mortar into an inspiring, ‘inclusive’ school environment that matches the needs of the communities it serves.

Click here for information on perceiving speech under classroom listening conditions. Classroom Acoustics and ANSI Standard S12.60:Every day, thousands of students across the country are unable to understand 25 to 30 percent of what’s said in their classroom. Excessive noise and reverberation in a classroom interferes with a student’s ability to clearly hear their teacher. Before reviewing the new standard, it’s important to be familiar with the attributes of sound found in the classroom that affect a student’s ability to hear and learn.

The goal of all education is to prepare students to participate in society, and for most people, vision is fundamental to learning. But what happens when a child has a visual impairment? Limitations on the ability to receive information from the world around us can have far-reaching effects, including an impact on a child's ability to understand concepts, learn language, move about freely with confidence, and develop in a variety of ways. For this reason, the families and teachers of children with visual impairments use alternative means and strategies for teaching them to read, write, interact socially, and perform various daily tasks. Currently, nearly 94,000 children in the United States who are blind or visually impaired are being helped by some form of special education. These students are an extremely diverse group ranging from infants to young adults through age 21. Education
