Disability and Accessibility

Adapted from the Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs

What part should Christians with developmental disabilities play in congregational life? The Episcopal Church’s Standing Commission on Health explores that topic, especially as it relates to autism spectral disorder, intellectual disability, and attention deficit disorder, in a 12-item questionnaire on SurveyMonkey.

Like one of the two General Convention resolutions that authorized this work, the survey grounds the question in the concept of full inclusion. Unlike the resolution, it does not refer specifically to people with Down syndrome, but more generally to people with intellectual disabilities.

August 17 is the deadline.
