Here you’ll find my hands-on teaching and prayer resources for children and families with disabilities. I strive to connect families with disabilities with full church life through the deep resources of our faith. If it’s by me, I have test-driven it and found it helpful for our autistic family or my students with disabilities. In the lower part of this page, you’ll find links to pages and posts about disability life in the Orthodox Church and in Christian life with disabilities generally, with an emphasis on ministry and church life with children and families.
