What’s up? A preview for Fall, 2012

Hey everyone!
I hope you are all having a great start to the school year/program year! For me, September really marks the true “New Year,” and I love the fresh start it gives all of us…it’s really a great time to set new goals for learning and growth, as students, parents and families.

Of course, I’ll be right here to teach and learn along with you! This week, I’ll be giving you some snippets of what our team at Key Ministry is up to!

The Group KidMin Conference in Chicago, Illinois, September 28-October 1

I’m so excited to teach at this conference…we’ll be examining in-depth some of the ways disabilities can affect faith development, church attendance, and family dynamics. We’ll also talk about ways to understand and manage these issues at church. We’ll be going beyond sticker charts, fidget toys and visual schedules to help get at the root of what really makes inclusion work. Finally, we’ll tackle the bullying issue head-on, and discuss ways to “bully-proof” our programs.

I’ll also be leading a Special Needs Ministry Connect Group in the afternoons…we’ll be learning from each other as we talk about YOUR questions and concerns, ideas and successes. And…I hope we’ll get to know each other and laugh a lot, too!

Have a great day~
