    This is an important book for parents, catechists, and parish faith formation leaders working to catechize children with special needs. It is worth the time to read and a good resource for those groups to have on hand. Given that this work is so important - and meaningful to me, personally, because of my history as a parish leader working with children, parents, and catechists on special needs faith formation - I wish it were a little more comprehensive. I am very grateful for the examples and e This is an important book for parents, catechists, and parish faith formation leaders working to catechize children with special needs. It is worth the time to read and a good resource for those groups to have on hand. Given that this work is so important - and meaningful to me, personally, because of my history as a parish leader working with children, parents, and catechists on special needs faith formation - I wish it were a little more comprehensive. I am very grateful for the examples and experience the Rizzo family shares from their own life and the additional suggestions they make. I wish they had done a little more to connect each chapter to relevant church teaching on the topic of the chapter and in particular address church teaching on each topic with regard to the special needs community. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t. If they had, they would have perhaps become aware that the tradition they follow with regard to saint names for Confirmation isn’t followed everywhere. They might have been more persuasive to those who don’t know much about this subject and are wary because they think they are straying from church teaching doing this work - and more helpful to those who need more background in what the church says on this subject in order to convince others that the church supports and encourages this sort of work.
