Abstract

This research is an investigation of ‘what is the potential of creativity and drawing for helping and supporting people with special needs?’ This research raises challenges that many teachers have experienced in working with people with special needs.

I have used qualitative methodology in the study. The participants in this study were long distanced and I have used snowballing techniques to recruit the participants. Key issues identified in this study are obtained from the coding frame: obstacles of implementing art education for people with special needs, copying and non-directive approaches in drawing and potential benefit and risk of creativity and drawing.

Finally, this section will end by outlining the whole structure of the dissertation. At the beginning, Chapter 1 will be presented. Chapter 1 will deal with rationale of using narrative, personal narrative and critical reflection of the personal narrative writing will be presented.

After that, I will direct the readers to Chapter 2 which at the beginning, the key questions that will be explored in the literature review. Strategies to locate the literature will also be presented and later two key themes will be reviewed.

Chapter 3 will be devoted for research design and the account. It will present the aim and purpose of the chapter, the research design which include my main research question, choice of methodology, choice of instrument, ethical considerations, recruitment of participant cohort, data collection and processing procedures, data analysis procedures, coding frame, strategies for making the account and finally the account will be presented.

In Chapter 4, I will discuss on matters emerging from Chapter 3. Three key issues will be discussed in relation to the literature.

In Chapter 5, I will discuss the implications of helping and supporting people with special needs specifically in relation to obstacles to implementing creative art issues.
