Description


"As an educator deeply invested in inclusive education, and as a mother to an incredible autistic son, I have often wrestled with my own perceptions and attitudes about disability and how they can get in the way of loving my neighbor well, especially my disabled neighbor. Vander Plaats discusses different attitudes we may have about disability and provides multiple resources on how to move along the pendulum from ignorance, to pity, to caring, to friendship, and ultimately, to co-laboring, where we find ourselves in rich reciprocal relationships with disabled people that enables both of us to fulfill our God-given callings. Each step is inherent in our journey and his booklet provides all the support we need to take the first step. Whether you are a teacher, pastor, church member or parent, consider how you view disability and how that impacts your relationships with the disabled and makes your communities inclusive places where abled and disabled people can walk out the path God has placed before them, hand in hand." Sarah Ternes
