Feed All My Sheep: A Guide and Curriculum for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

by Doris C. Clark. Geneva Press, 2000.

Recognizing the needs for religious education and full inclusion among adults with developmental disabilities, author Doris Clark has written a book that guides churches in planning and implementing this special education ministry. Part One is a guide to identifying needs, engaging the church, recruiting class leaders, and publicity. Part Two supplies a detailed curriculum, with scriptural passages and lesson plans for each class. Among the themes highlighted in this curriculum are “Fellowship,” “Prayer,” and “Communion.” Part Three presents hymns and songs. The book concludes with a list of education and music resources, newsletters, and videotapes. For congregations that want to make religious education a reality for adults with developmental disabilities, Clark has provided a wealth of ideas that can be quickly and easily implemented.
