ShareInformation Card for Faith Leaders to Get to Know Your Child
Coming soonGoogle Classroom
Raising kids in faith is important to many families. But it can be hard for kids who struggle with behavior and social skills to
take part in religious services. Some kids have trouble sitting still, or speak out at the wrong time. Others may have
autism, and other challenges.
How can you make sure your child is included in your faith community? These tools can help. You’ll find:
A fact sheet you can give to your faith leader. It includes
research from Andrew Whitehead of Clemson University. It also has recommendations from Jewish, Muslim, and Christian inclusion experts.
An information card to help your faith leader understand your child’s challenges and what your child needs to take part in religious services. There’s a blank version to fill out, and a sample you can look at.
If it’s more comfortable for you, you can send the fact sheet to your faith leader anonymously. Keep in mind that most faith leaders want to help. But they might need help understanding how to help.
