Encouraging Children With Special Needs When They Are Away From School

By: Joannie DeBrito, Director of Parenting and Youth at Focus on the Family

For those of you with children with special needs, here are some tips that may help your children hold on to the recent gains they’ve made, during the summer or while they’re learning at home.

Supporting Parents of Special Needs Children
For friends and family members, remember that being the parent of a child with special needs takes a lot of energy beyond that which is required of any parent. So, ask the parent of a child with special needs how you can support her (or him) and be ready to pitch in where needed.

Online Therapy Sessions
You might also want to ask if you can arrange therapy sessions via an online video program. If that’s possible, ask the therapist what materials you need to have on hand for the therapy session, before the session starts.

Set A Routine
Remember that most children, including those with special needs, respond well to routines. Typically, repetition yields some good results. So, as much as possible, try to match the routines they’ve gotten used to at school.

Plan for Transitions
Transitions are hard for some children with special needs so, if that’s the case with your child, remember to give him or her notice before you’re going to switch to a new activity. You might want to use a timer so your child can see that the time is winding down for one activity and you’ll be switching soon.

Upcoming Book: I Surrender

By: Mike Springston

Have you ever looked at the events of your life and wondered, “Why is this happening to me?” We all do but rarely do we stop to consider where these events are trying to lead us.

Mike Springston has been a well-recognized innovator in the world of football since his 1990 team exploded on the scene with an amazing new and high-flying offensive system. Again in 2006, Mike invented the Run Pass Option offense that has taken the football worldwide by storm. With all these innovations in football, Mike knew that there was a war going on in his spirit as winning and success never seemed to be enough.

When Mike began to evaluate himself, he realized that God had a better plan for his life if he would only surrender to the plan that God had for him. Mike currently is assigned by the International Pentecostal Holiness Church as the Lead Pastor of a church in Mount Airy, North Carolina.

His book covers questions and topics such as:

• Are you searching for the meaning and purpose of your life?
• Are you facing a major health issue?
• Have you lost a loved one?
• Are you wondering about the relevance of God?
• Are you wondering if there is a plan for your life and for your future?
• Are you trying to make sense out of the events that have happened in your life?
• Are you trying to locate your calling and settle upon a course for your life that will bring contentment?

If you purchase this book at retail value it will be $21.99 plus shipping and handling. Below are a few special purchasing options Mike is offering:

1. The cost of a single copy will be $25.00 which includes tax, shipping and handling
2. If you purchase 5 books at $25.00 which includes tax, shipping and handling and I will give you a 6th book for ½ price with the addition of tax, shipping and handling.
3. If you buy 15 books at $25.00 which includes tax, shipping and handling I will give you 1 free.
4. For every increment of 15 books the one free offer stands. (ex.75 books purchased would get you 5 free) Of course, shipping and handling will be added to all orders of any size.

Do Not Fear...

Pam Rooker, Girls' Ministries Director

But now, this is what the LORD says - He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
Isaiah 43:1-2 NIV

In Isaiah 43:1-2 we are told not to fear. I don’t know about you, but there have been times in my life this year when I have had to remind myself that the Bible tells me do not fear. We must remind ourselves to stand on the promises in God’s word.

Promises like Isaiah 43:2 when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

The next time you are feeling overwhelmed by the stress of life, stop and spend some time in God’s word; there you find will peace and assurance.
