Inclusion of children with special needs through music in Arts education programs
In order to contribute to the Inclusive Education of Children with Special Needs in Specialized Artistic Education, in 2018 an action-research project was started to change the practices of promoting inclusion. To this end, a short-term training course was held to learn about the real needs and difficulties experienced by professionals involved in the educational and rehabilitation processes of students with Special Needs and to provide teachers in training with specific tools and knowledge to teach music to students with special needs. Once the training was completed, a questionnaire with semi-open questions prepared and validated for the occasion was applied to the 60 participants of the training. The present work reveals the results of this questionnaire, whose answers were subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis.
