I have really enjoyed working with Mike Woods of Making Room on several projects recently. Mike is a behavior analyst for St. Louis’ largest public school system, and the proud dad of three boys (triplets!) who have autism. Mike has been a great help to the Key Ministry team, and has generously given us his time as a volunteer. We’re so grateful!
Mike and I chatted via BlogTalk Radio about the importance of positive, proactive communication between parents of kids with disabilities and church volunteers/staff. Please click on the links below to listen!

Katie – I’ve only listened to the first tape – so many helpful suggestions.
It just makes me so aware though that if the Church was doing a more intentional, individualistic ministry with all their kids then the kids with disabilities would just be another opportunity for intentional, individualist ministry.
I continue to pray that the Lord will awaken children’s ministry leaders to the need.
Thank you, Wanda! I’m so glad that so many of us are passionate about this issue! Hope you had a happy Easter!
