Description

There are around 40,000 children and young people in the UK alone with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties, in special schools and in mainstream education. Research has indicated that provision is at best patchy, despite the widely held belief that music is beneficial, both in its own right and to promote wider development. This book seeks to foster progress in what is still a young discipline by reflecting on contemporary thinking and practice, identifying key issues, introducing recent and ongoing research, and providing practical advice for practitioners including teachers, therapists, and community musicians.show more

Review quote

Where Ockelford's book enriches the field is in his emphasis on research into what is meant by developmentally relevant musical activities for teachers to use. * Elaine Streeter, University of York * perhaps a better name for this text would be, Music for Children and Young People with and without Complex Needs. This text, as is, is recommended to anyone engaged in music education. It is my hope, as the author has proposed in his conclusion. that what will follow will be increasingly more practical coherence to the theoretical foundation he has laid in Music for Children and Young People with Complex Needs. * Alice-Ann Darrow, Psychology of Music 38(1) 2010 *show more
