Inclusion Fusion – Disability Web Symposium

“Inclusion Fusion is a worldwide web symposium to equip churches to more effectively minister to families of kids with disabilities.  Inclusion Fusion is designed as an opportunity for Christ followers everywhere to come together to share ideas and resources to advance the movement among Christ-honoring churches to serve, welcome and include families of kids with disabilities. Inclusion Fusion is made available free of charge, to ensure the participation of as many church leaders, volunteers and families as possible.”

Sensory Fidgets – Wacky Sacks

“Wacky Sacks – Squeeze, throw, mold & play!”
This is a cool idea for families, teachers, and children’s ministry leaders.  (Unless someone in your family/classroom has a latex allergy, then you may want to rethink it.)

Doing Ministry Like A Missionary

“Whether you want to call it “outeach,” “missional,” or “go and tell,” I think it’s important for church-based special needs ministries (and churches without special needs ministries) to start operating again like missionaries.

We need to be the ones to shoulder the responsibility of being missionaries and take the initiative to cross cultural barriers in order to reach the people that we’re passionate about to meaningfully communicate the Gospel.” – Mike Woods

Project DOCC Parent Training

  • What is Project DOCC?

    What are the components of Project DOCC?

    What are the responsibilities of a Parent Trainer?

    How specifically can my story be used to train a pediatric resident?

The Parents Advisory Council of Children's Hospital at Erlanger began almost 10 years ago with the goal to improve care at Children’s Hospital.  As part of this initiative, Project DOCC (Delivery of Chronic Care), a resident training program, was re-launched at the hospital recently.  Veteran DOCC parent trainers and LifeLine will be preparing the parents who will ultimately be training the residents though Children’s Hospital’s PAC/DOCC program. If you feel that you have some experience raising a child with special health care needs, are willing to share your journey to benefit others, and would be interested in being an advocate in this way, please contact me. We are currently actively recruiting potential families for pediatric resident trainers.

You can learn more about Project DOCC by watching this short summary: Project DOCC

New parents, plan to join us on Saturday, October 25th, for the initial parent training as we develop new Parent Trainers for 2015!  Lunch will be provided.
