Abstract: Teachers today are faced with the task of mainstreaming. This includes the provision of appropriate learning experiences for both the nonspecial and special needs child in her classroom. Creative Arts is a particularly rich area that the teacher can turn to. Knowledge of the potentials held by the handicapped child is therefore needed to provide the most meaningful creative experiences. My study intends to provide a means by which knowledge of a handicapped child’s potential can be increased. It assesses the creative talent potential of children who are learning disabled through the administration and evaluation of a test battery from the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking. The purpose of my study is to identify and assess the “creative” strengths of learning disabled children, and to consider the results for their educational implications and future research possibilities.
