New Sign Including People with DISABILITIES in Faith Communities
A guide for service providers, families, and congregations.
By Erik Carter
{Published by Lash & Associates Publishing, 2007}

"A congregational community is an ideal place to share and strengthen faith, form lasting relationships, and develop special gifts and talents. But too often, people with developmental and other disabilities lack the opportunities and supports to fully participate in the life of their faith community. That’s why families and service providers need to read this groundbreaking guidebook—and share a copy with congregations that want to become places of welcome and belonging for people with disabilities."
