LDS Disability Resources FAQ: How To

Q: How do I adapt a lesson for a child, youth, or adult with a disability?

A: Teachers and leaders are to use Church-approved curriculum and resources. However, lessons and activities can be adapted to fit individual circumstances. For example, a child with an attention deficit disorder may need more songs or crafts related to the lesson. A youth with autism may need to communicate using pictures related to the lesson, or a teacher may need to use more visual resources.

For more information, go to How to Adapt a Lesson. Or go to the webpage for a specific disability which lists teaching tips that may be helpful.

Q: How can I help young women with developmental disabilities follow the Personal Progress program?

A: You are encouraged to follow the basic principles of the Personal Progress program, but the goals can be adapted to the individual needs and circumstances of the young women.

For more information go to the Personal Progress Section of the Young Women Site.
