Christ's practice in action,
This review is from: Let All the Children Come to Me: A Practical Guide Including Children with Disabilities in Your Church Ministries (Paperback)
This book is written for the typical Sunday School teacher with no prior special needs training, however, even special educators can learn from it, or at least be reminded of essential principles. I loved this book because it offers practical advice for putting Christ's practices in to action in the Sunday school classroom. More important than changing what we are teaching to reach the child with special needs, is the changing of our attitude about why the child is there to begin with, and from there how to impart the lesson, which may be different than the lesson being taught to the other children. We all learn differently, and we all come away from a situation with a different experience. I loved the book and recommend it for use even in a secular classroom. I had our church purchase several of these books for all of our Sunday school teachers to read. It's easy to read and can be read in a few sittings. It should be required reading for ALL (not just special needs) Sunday school teachers.
