Catechesis for Persons with Disabilities
National Directory for Catechesis
, no. 49)
Persons with disabilities, especially children, are particularly beloved by the Lord and are integral members of the Christian community. They include those with cognitive disabilities, those with developmental disabilities, those with learning disabilities, the emotionally disturbed, persons with physical disabilities, the hard of hearing, the deaf, the visually impaired, the blind, and others. All persons with disabilities have the capacity to proclaim the Gospel and to be living witnesses to its truth within the community of faith and offer valuable gifts. Every person, however limited, is capable of growth in holiness.
Catechesis for persons with disabilities must be adapted in content and method to their particular situations.
