This book addresses how faith communities, service providers, and families can work together to support the full participation of individuals with disabilities in the faith community of their choice. Topics include: rationale for including and supporting people with disabilities within a faith community; the importance of collaboration among faith communities, service providers, families, and individuals with disabilities to establish and maintain supports; specific ideas for including individuals with disabilities and for developing a network of religious groups, service providers, and families to make faith communities more inclusive. Carter incorporates the following elements into the book: practical strategies, vignettes, case examples (i.e., model programs), resource lists, and photocopiable forms, checklists, and interview guides.
