First Communion book to help children with a learning disability


I Belong Special is a translation of the First Communion children’s book which will help children with a learning disability to encounter the person of Christ. Until now there has been a very ad-hoc approach to ensuring that children of all abilities can sit alongside one another in a catechetical session and engage in the same catechesis, each according to their own way of being and knowing. For children with learning disabilities, visual language, which is used to support learning and communication, has to be one that does not have too much information to process, yet enables them to share in the message and activities that each chapter presents.
