Teacher: Ashley Belknap, Director of Engaging Disability With The Gospel
Transitioning from children’s ministry to youth ministry is a major rite of passage for covenant kids. We want teens with disabilities to thrive in their youth ministries. However, the transition for many of them is difficult because of increased social expectations and learning demands.
In this online training we will explore various options for better transitioning, assimilating, and discipling your youth who have cognitive, physical, and learning impairments.
Topics we will cover:
- Social barriers and expectations in youth groups
- Several models for inclusion and useful adaptations
- Transitioning from children’s ministry into youth ministry
- Partnering with parents
- Tips for bringing along your entire youth group in being comfortable with disabilities
