Presents an Australian perspective on the issues in expressive arts in early childhood education by authors who are researching, teaching and actively involved in the arts as theatre directors, painter designers, adjudicators, advisers, actors or arts administrators in community organizations at the national and international level. It constitutes a collective look at the arts and young children. This volume covers a wide spectrum of arts areas, including the roles of the teacher as co-worker, collaborator, guide, facilitator and stage-manager; the tertiary educator in indigenous art, improvizational drama, and movement and dance; and the early childhood adviser in national, non-commercial television production. In addition, there is discussion on the national broadcasting standards required for children's commercial television production in Australia, the value of language and literature in the lives of young children and experimental programmes for theatre companies and symphony orchestras.
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) arts education framework is founded on a vision of a society that believes the arts are essential to every child's complete development. Throughout their lives, they will draw from artistic experience and knowledge as a means of understanding what happens both inside and outside their own skin, just as they use mathematical, scientific, and other frameworks for understanding. This book examines the results of the 2008 National Assessment of Education Progress in the arts, which was given to a nationally representative sample of 7,900 eighth grade public and private school students.
?For many general practitioners, physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropracters, patients with a background in performing arts account for only a small proportion of their practice.

A first degree in a medical speciality is assumed so space has not been allocated to the standard management of common conditions such as epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, ankle sprains of fractures. With some thirty years practical experience around the theme of "Controversies in Performing Arts Medicine", the editor has provided occupational rheumatological care for performing artists, especially instrumentalists and dancers with complex ailments. The introductory section provides a basic insight into the musculoskeletal problems specific to each of the many varied instruments and styles of dance. Consideration is also given to musculoskeletal aspects that affect the voice.
