Breakout Sessions

Breakout 1:

Using Multisensory Strategies to Teach Scripture
This hands-on session will equip you with low-cost and no-cost ideas to engage a variety of learners in your children’s ministry, including those who learn best through hearing, or seeing, or doing.

Breakout 2:

Equipping Your Children’s Ministry Team for Hidden Disabilities
What do common hidden disabilities and mental health conditions look like in the children’s ministry setting? This session will feature case-based training that you can experience first-hand and then take back to your volunteers.

Breakout 3:

Disability Inclusion is Not a Silo Ministry
Disability inclusion is not a church program; it’s a mindset. How can we share the vision with our church leadership, the congregation, and out into the community?
