Description

Education for Special Needs provides a unique introduction to Rudolf Steiner's ideas on the education of children with special needs, particularly as practised in the Camphill movement. Curative education aims to treat children with intellectual and sensory handicaps or nervous and emotional disturbances, through predominantly pedagogical means. It draws on insights from psychiatry, paediatrics, psychology, sociology, education and the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner. This book looks at the underlying principles of Steiner's approach to education and at how the educational curriculum of the Waldorf schools is adapted for the special needs of the handicapped.
