Beverley Taylor Sorenson, whose contributions continue to be felt in both arts and education at Utah State University, recently established an endowed program making the arts accessible to children with disabilities. The $3 million endowment from Sorenson will help children with disabilities access the arts in education. Her support allows staff from Caine College of the Arts and Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services to create modules that will show teachers ways to adapt arts education so that all children will have a chance to participate. For example, it may find ways to use assistive technology so that a child who cannot grip a brush can still paint. The university will also provide technical support to schools and develop course work for students studying special and elementary education. It will all be done with the goal of increasing arts experiences for children with disabilities.
