I recently had the opportunity to talk with my friend, Sarah Broady, on her podcast, A Special Hope. We talked about creating inclusive classroom environments for children’s ministry. Specifically, we discussed tools and strategies leaders and teachers can use with individuals with unique needs in their classes, as well as boundaries if a teacher suspects a diagnosis, but the parent has not provided any diagnosis, or there hasn’t been any testing yet.
In addition to practical ideas and steps for ministry leaders and teachers to use with families, we also talked through how spouses grieve the diagnosis process differently and the encouragement of hope we have in Christ as our high priest who empathizes with us in our suffering.
