Special Needs Ministry Volunteer Training The annual Special Needs Volunteer training will be taking place on Saturday, August 27 in room 108. The training will begin with key speaker, Barb Newman doing a presentation on Sensory integration. So what‘s sensory integration all about? Sensory Integration – Do you have children or adults covering their ears because noises are too loud? Refusing to enter a crowded large group setting? Getting very upset when someone brushes up against him or her? It could stem from sensory differences. Understand what it is and how to help. (Very common in children and some adults with ADD, ADHD, ASD, and other neurological differences). Participants will: - Discover that we have more than 5 senses - Learn about the sensory systems - Discover what one might see when the senses are over or under sensitive - Understand some ideas churches can try to help that setting be a more comfortable place for each individual If you are interested in learning more, we invite you to sign up to hear Barb speak. You do not have to be involved in the Special Needs Ministry. This presentation is open to anyone who would like to learn more about sensory integration . Following Barb’s presentation those involved in the Special Needs Ministry will have ministry specific trainings. If you are curious about what is going on in the special needs ministry here at Calvary we invite you to attend these ministry specific trainings as well.
