Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Heilpädagogik, Sonderpädagogik, be aware: Eins, Universität Koblenz-Landau (Institut für Sonderpädagogik), Veranstaltung: Seminar: Integration im Sach-; Sprach- und Mathematikunterricht, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Im Folgenden werden die zehn Thesen zur Integration von behinderten Kindern von Jakob Muth analysiert und im Hinblick auf ihre Verwirklichung untersucht. Aufgrund der inzwischen vergangenen zwanzig Jahre seit Erscheinen des Artikels, bietet sich daher auch ein Rückblick an, der zeigen soll, ob in diesen Jahren eine Veränderung des integrativen Ansatzes stattgefunden hat.

Als erstes stellt sich die Frage, wer integriert werden soll. Gibt es hierzu die notwendigen Voraussetzungen organisatorischer und personeller paintings? Es findet additionally eine Definition der zu integrierenden individual statt und auch der nötigen Voraussetzungen.
Zum zweiten ist die Frage wichtig, wer ist derjenige, integrieren soll? Ist es der Sonderpädagoge, der begleitend das sort unterrichtet oder ist es die Regelschullehrerin, die in ihrer Klasse die zu integrierende individual mit unterrichtet?
Drittens müssen die Ziele der Integration klar definiert sein. Wozu wird integriert und in welchem Bereich? Ist es nur eine vorübergehende Integration oder soll sie von Dauer sein. Zudem stellt sich die Frage, wer diese Ziele definiert. Die Eltern, die Schule, das sort oder - bestenfalls - alle zusammen?

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Heilpädagogik, Sonderpädagogik, notice: 2, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In der Heilpädagogik ist in den letzten Jahren ein Ansatz sehr aktuell geworden, der Menschen mit geistigen Behinderungen Möglichkeiten bieten will, künstlerisch und kreativ tätig zu sein und sich in ihren Fähigkeiten auszuprobieren, ohne auf bestimmte Förderziele hinzuarbeiten.
Pädagogen wollen mithilfe ästhetischer Erziehung mit Menschen mit Behinderungen arbeiten, ohne den primären Anspruch zu therapieren oder Defizite zu heilen. Hier steht der Mensch mit seiner gesamten Persönlichkeit, mit seinen Stärken, aber auch mit seinen Schwächen im Mittelpunkt der Arbeit. Nicht das Erreichen von pädagogischen Zielen ist die Hauptaufgabe von ästhetischer Erziehung, sondern die Interessen, Wünsche und Bedürfnisse der Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung sind hier vorrangig. Der Gebrauch von ästhetischen Mitteln soll den Menschen helfen, sich und ihre Welt zu erfahren und zu erkennen, um so zu möglichst viel Autonomie und Selbstbestimmung zu gelangen.
