8:30 am - Behavior Management Playing Field: Supporting Children and Church Volunteers

Tory White, Church Services Coordinator at CLC Network: Christian Learning Center
This session will equip church volunteers, leaders, and parents with multiple tools to support individuals with unique behavior needs. While we will cover some strategies for including individuals with intense behavior needs, participants will leave with a framework to use when interacting with all individuals in their home or church settings.

The CLC Network are experts in inclusive education for more than twenty-five years, they have come alongside the Christian community to help us include and support all of God’s people – regardless of their level of ability – so that the kingdom can be more complete.

There will also be time to pray in new ways with this tremendously important prayer.
