"This Professional Development Course 'Add Drama and Music to your Special Needs Classroom' is rooted in Leslie Fanelli’s extensive experience as artist, educator and advocate for the rights of people with different abilities. Her full engagement to this project has enabled her to deliver a comprehensive experience, where teachers, parents and care givers (and anyone interested in education and self-development) are guided into knowledge of the human brain, body, emotions and behaviour.
The course is structured in a way that enables you to search deep inside your own resources, to best apply the scientifically based principles of Universal Design for Learning and Multiple Intelligences. You learn to design your own creative, engaging and fun lesson plans. This course shows the way towards truly inclusive classrooms, meaningful learning processes, and healthy relationships. Anyone interested in 'how we are' and 'how we learn,' should take it."
