What does the Church teach about Sacramental Preparation for People with Disabilities? The talk provides an overview of what the Directory for Catechesis tells us. Questions to contemplate: What are the dispositions required to be admitted to the Sacraments of Initiation? How can they be assessed for different communication style like a child who is non-verbal? Adapting Catechesis for the Sacraments of Initiation? What can be changed and adapted in sacramental preparation to suit the communication style of a child with additional needs? Adapting the Reception of the Sacraments of Initiation? What can be legitimately adapted in the celebration of the sacraments to accommodate a child who might struggle to receive Holy Communion or make a verbal Confession?
