Holding virtual Church meetings can introduce some unique challenges for those with disabilities. Here are some tips on helping everyone feel included, no matter the circumstance:

  • Personally invite them to participate.
  • Explore accessible formats with them. For example, many online meeting formats offer a feature to turn on closed captions while meeting.
  • See what else could be done to meet individual needs in your area.
  • Be sure to give them opportunities to respond in class discussions.
  • Make sure that those who are deaf or hard of hearing can see the teacher and class members.
  • Follow up to make sure they had a good experience and see if any changes need to be made.
