The Child with Special Needs: Letters and Essays on Curative Education (Paperback)

Karl K nig, the founder of Camphill, was a prolific lecturer and writer on a wide range of subjects from anthroposophy and Christology through social questions and curative education to science and history.

In this remarkable collection of Karl K nig's letters and essays, K nig considers and discusses the fundamentals of special needs education.

He shows that there are three core aspects to a successful holistic education and healing approach: firstly, a positive social environment, which in the context of Camphill is achieved through small family units of carers and children; secondly, that carers' work is based on an insightful understanding of the nature and potential of each individual child and disability; and thirdly that medical treatment is imbued with courage to keep believing that the impossible is possible.
