5 Stages: The Journey of Disability Attitudes

5 Stages: The Journey of Disability Attitudes

How we look at others says a lot about whether our perspective is in line with God’s perspective. But what about the way in which we look at people with disabilities?
 
How do you look at people with disabilities? Elim wants to help you answer that question!  That’s why we developed “5 Stages: The Journey of Disability Attitudes”.
 
Following are some ways you can learn more about the 5 Stages and even utilize them in your school, church, or community (please note that all materials are the intellectual property of Elim Christian Services, and Elim should be credited in any and all uses of these materials).
