Format: Paperback
Joni and Friends is the most established and well-known/respected organization dedicated to sharing Christ's love with children and adults with special needs. As such, I expected this book to be useful. It includes two CDs (which are compatible with Windows or Mac): the first has the entire 331-page manual in pdf form so you can easily reproduce pages, and the second includes training videos that you could use. I haven't reviewed all the videos yet, but they appear to be high-quality and useful. (Wait until you know for sure that you're keeping the book before you open the DVDs, though, because it says that the book can't be returned once their seals are broken.)

Chapters relate to:
1) Needs and definitions
2) Recruiting and training volunteers (including job descriptions)
3) Teaching strategies
4) Communication skills
5) Family ministry and outreach
6) Medical concerns
7) Behavior issues
8) Spiritual growth and service
9) Bible studies on disability awareness
10) Read aloud stories about children with disabilities
11) Resources for support and more information about disabilities
12) Teaching resources
Many of the pages are reproducible, and it include several forms that you could readily use in your ministry. To have a more professional look that matches the look of our other materials, I will likely just use the pages as a guide rather than using them ready-made, but that's not necessary.

However, as comprehensive as it is, I'm not sure how useful it could be for most churches. It doesn't seem as tough the concepts included in the book were prioritized or organized in any intentional way, which results in an information overload without much guidance about what the most important parts are.

I was able to use this book extensively when training volunteers for our new special needs ministry. Very easy to read/understand and gave helpful hints all the way through. Really liked the included cd for printing handouts. I could copy and paste what I needed easily from the cd and then paste it into a word document and create the exact handout I needed for our group.

Churches don't have to recreate the wheel to include individuals with special needs. This manual makes it simple with everything from forms, to personal stories.
