View all THEO classes

Trains persons in the helping professions to perform ministries of care, support and advocacy to and with persons with physical disabilities, mental disabilities, chronic illnesses, permanent sensory impairments and/or bodily disfigurements, and to and with their families. The course will take an interdisciplinary approach, placing recent biblical scholarship and theological reflection on disability into conversation with contemporary educational, medical, and social-scientific theories of disability. Attention will also be given to legislation governing the accessibility of public spaces and the means of making appropriate accommodations for persons with disabilities to the services and programs offered in churches, schools, businesses, and other public institutions.
