Course Description & Purpose


The elective aims to present catechists with a range of accommodations and adaptations that can be used to support catechists in special needs catechesis. As part of the course, participants will be guided to develop suitable strategies to support the children and youth in their catechetical spaces. The discussion about the strategies will be also situated in the context of their respective parishes so that the participants may also have ideas on how their parish communities can begin to support special needs catechesis beyond just their catechetical spaces.
