2016 Workshop

Special Needs: High Needs Children and How to Teach ALL Children


Too often churches view special needs children as important but too much of a burden to attempt to engage. However, embracing special needs children can often be the first step toward improving your ministry to all children. • Discover teaching techniques that accommodate learning with reading disorders to improve the learning experience for everyone • Tap into the expertise of parents and build a partnership that helps you reach every child. • Leverage debriefing questions to increase empathy and assertiveness in every child • Learn inclusive methods at each age level to make your church open to everyone
