Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to enlighten and discuss dance as a form of expression for hard of hearing children, from a starting point of dance educational praxis. In every special educational setting communication is challenged. Traditionally, training these children's spoken language has been the common way of developing communication skills. We will present our starting points for using dance as an alternative communication, to offer different forms of expression. A good self esteem is in our opinion the ground for communication. One challenge in this respect is to take care of the initiatives of the children. Another aspect is to use the body in a communicative context and learn how it works in relation to other human beings. Also important is to catch how the children participate in the activities, from their specific circumstances. One part is how they imitate the teacher, the classmates and themselves. We also want to enlighten how the teacher relates to the children and their learning in this context. Finally we want to discuss different ways of developing this project, and how it is possible to use in other special educational settings.
