Stuff worth checking out at the Through The Roof Summit

The complete schedule for the breakout sessions for the upcoming Bioethics Conference and Through The Roof Summit is now available here. In addition to the presentations being offered by Katie and Annie Wetherbee, Rebecca and Abby Hamilton, Dr. Cara Daily and myself described here, allow me to suggest several other folks you want to check out if you’re planning to attend the conference at Cedarville University on September 15-17.

Nella Uitvlugt is the Executive Director of Friendship Ministries. Friendship has outstanding resources for churches seeking to minister to adults with developmental disabilities. Autism and Your Church is a product of Friendship Ministries.

Gary Sweeten is presenting the results of research he described last Fall on this blog examining the needs of caregivers in families impacted by disability. His presentation is What They (Parents) Told Us They Wanted And Needed.

Our friends (and Inclusion Fusion speakers) Joe and Cindi Ferrini will be presenting on the topic Marriage Matters-The Unexpected Journey: When Special Needs Change Our Course.

In addition to those presentations, our friends Deb Peterman and Lisa Brown from Joni and Friends Ohio have a number of useful presentations.

Last (but not least), Joni Earickson Tada will be speaking on both Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th, in addition to her talk on Thursday morning the 15th at Cedarville’s Chapel Service.
