‘All Inclusive?’ – How to Include Children and Young People with ADHD in Church – accessibility, inclusion, belonging, and spiritual development for all. An Urban Saints event. Includes a full-colour A4 workbook, access to video learning, and an interactive online group training session.

Without considered and intentional measures, many aspects of church life can pose challenges for children and young people with ADHD.

This practical training provides useful advice on how to make church a space where children and young people with ADHD can thrive. It urges children’s, youth and families workers to be agents of change within both their own ministries and the wider church community, building a better place for accessibility, inclusion, belonging and spiritual development for all.

Areas covered include:

– What ADHD is (and isn’t!), other terms for ADHD (VAST, DAVE), how common ADHD is, neurodiversity, core areas of ADHD, and more.

– General ways to support children and young people with ADHD

– Practical ways to help children and young people with ADHD

– Case studies

– Further resources, links, and information

The ‘All Inclusive?’ – How to Include Children and Young People with ADHD in Church training programme includes:

– A comprehensive colour A4 training workbook with a wealth of information and resources sent to each participant in advance.

– Access to a series of videos to explore and learn through, covering a range of associated topics.

– Finally, a Zoom session including discussion groups, case studies, Q&A, and signposting to further resources to investigate, as we wrap this programme up together.
