The Mentally Handicapped: A Challenge for the Church

From: Volume III, Issue 2: Spring 1983 Pages 39-45


This article examines the dynamics of providing Christian education for the mentally handicapped. It analyzes problems often encountered, and offers possible methods for their solution. By juxtaposing common problems with potential solutions, one can begin to see that ministering to the retarded holds forth promise and reward. The author uses a variety of resources for the research of the paper, including advice and guidance from professionals in Christian education of the retarded, experiences gained from programs in Hawaii, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee, and concepts formed by such experts as Gloria Hawley, Jean Piaget, and Willard Abraham.
