Welcoming people with disabilities to your church

Educator and writer Barbara J. Newman specializes in identifying and sharing methods of including children with disabilities in social settings. In 2013, the Indianapolis Center for Congregations, a nonprofit organization that helps Indiana churches find and use resources to address their challenges and opportunities, asked Dr. Newman to provide a workshop focusing on strategies for cultivating communities of inclusion for disabled children. Dr. Newman provided workship materials and tips, which the Center for Congregations has archived on its website. For more on developing faith communities that make worship more accessible to people with disabilities, see our feature article, "From Accessibility to Inclusion." For more on including children in worship, see our feature article, "Take Action: Include Children in Your Worship Service."
