5 Ways for Special Needs Parents to Make Church More Inclusive

April 8, 2011

Check out the article 5 Ways to Make Your Church More Inclusive, featured on specialchildren.about.com.  I was honored to be a part of this article, which was written for parents who want to help their existing church grow to be more accepting and inclusive of children with special needs.  The writer behind this site, Terri Mauro, blogs about this topic and invites her readers to comment here.  Specialchildren.about.com is an incredible resource for anyone supporting families impacted by special needs.  For churches looking for ideas on products or strategies that can translate into the church setting, I highly recommend making a regular visit to this website.  The site’s diagnosis index is my most trusted tool when I run across a term with which I lack familiarity.

I also recommend Bill Gaventa’s guest post, Religious Inclusion and Autism, featured on the sister website, autism.about.com.  I have tremendous respect for Bill Gaventa and the work he is doing on a large scale to promote acceptance in the faith community.
