This workshop is designed for parents of children receiving special education services or that might need special education services. Come and gain a working knowledge of special education laws, including your role as a parent in the development of an appropriate education program (IEP) and how to be an effective partner with the school team in the process.

Vacation Bible School Staff i_heart_vbsTraining for Inclusion of Children with Special Needs

VBS season is just around the corner!  Before your church launches VBS this year, be sure that your staff is prepared to fully include children with special needs throughout the VBS week.

What are some inclusion strategies?

What are other churches doing?

How do you include a child who uses a wheelchair?

How do you include a child with autism?

What are the similarities or differences?

Join us for a general overview of VBS activities and ideas for successful inclusion of children with special needs in your church's Vacation Bible School program.   We will cover multiple types of disabilities and inclusion ideas for each.   Coming with a specific child in mind?  We'll end the night with a Question & Answer session.
