Faith and flourishing

Faith can be important aspect of flourishing for many people with disabilities and their families. This line of work focuses on the place of faith in the lives of individuals, the postures and practices of faith communities that see themselves as incomplete without the presence and participation of people with disabilities, and the ways in which service systems can support a life of faith. 

We are in the midst of studies addressing the spirituality of young people with intellectual disability, the experiences of youth ministers who have included individuals with disabilities, and the impact of life lived together and people with and without developmental disabilities.
