Take The Next Step (UNIQUE Prayer)

In order to partner with parents and support them in teaching their child to pray, we’re providing the exact prayer template that we’re using in our Special Friends classroom.  This will allow parents to use the exact same learning materials at home that we are using in the classroom to nurture a child’s prayer life.  Using the same prayer template at home and school will provide a fair amount of repetition (which always enhances learning!).

Remember, our character trait/virture this month is Unique.  Unique is defined as “someone who’s one of a kind!”  Therefore, our prayer is focused on teaching a child that she or he is unique…one of a kind…loved unconditionally by our Creator and made in His image.  Click on the link below to look at and print this month’s prayer template:

Unique Prayer

Teaching a child with special needs to pray is in many ways like teaching a child any other skill or craft.  It often requires an individualized approach.  Sometimes hearing a few helpful hints will be enough to support and motivate parents who want to begin teaching their child how to pray!  Our podcast this month will help you to learn how to use the prayer template for a child who meets one of the following criteria:

  • A child who can read.
  • A child who has SOME sight words.
  • A child who is echolalic.
  • A nonverbal child who has good visual discrimination skills.
