Does your church welcome children with special needs?
That is a question that many kids ministry leaders should be asking. It’s also the topic of our very first podcast. It took a little more work than I expected, but the end result is a very helpful conversation about welcoming special needs children into your church. The guest for this podcast was Amy Fenton Lee from The Inclusive Church blog.

In this fast moving conversation, we covered several topics related to churches and kids with special needs. Amy shared how she began to write about this topic and offered some starting points that will work for any church. We discussed a few difficult cases, then talked about how to encourage parents who are cooping with an Autism diagnosis.
