Theater art can aid students who have special educational needs particularly deaf students to express themselves and enhance their communicative competence by way of a constructive approach. Learning approach of this type can foster a conducive learning environment, student-centered learning, participatory learning, problem-solving learning and develop children's potential in such aspects as knowledge, skills, and attitudes. The primary objective of this research is to examine the use of the constructive approach in theater art teaching in a deaf school in West Java.

Data were elicited through observations, interviews, documentation and literature study, and were validated through triangulation and member check. Findings reveal that the constructive approach in teaching theater arts can help the students boost the fluency of their speech.
