2016 Workshops

Special Needs: 10 Things Students With Autism Want You To Know

3/5/2016

This workshop is designed to give an overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder and the impacts it has the child, family and church community. An emphasis will be on giving strategies to support inclusion and full participation.

Elizabeth Morgan ha a scheduling conflict so Lisa Krejci will be presenting this workshop in her place. Lisa is an Occupational Therapist and leads the His Kids Ministry at Venture Church in Los Gatos. Her passion for the special needs community began in 1996 after visiting an orphanage in the Ukraine. Now, after over 14 years of experience as a professional Occupational Therapist, she has found great joy providing therapy for students and adults with developmental disabilities. While volunteering in church Sunday school, she realized that the church in general was not equipped to support children with special needs. Lisa now co-leads a ministry for children and families with special needs at Venture Christian Church and is passionate to see families with special needs children integrated into ministry.
