“Family Home Evening Helps: For Beginning Learners,” Ensign, Aug. 2007, 75
Did you know that the Church has a CD-ROM and videos that can help you teach beginning learners or intellectually challenged students? The Beginning Course Kit is a useful resource for classroom or home instruction. My children have developmental delays, and we have found the “Teaching the Topics and Themes” information to be a valuable resource. When I first bought the kit, I used its various hard-copy pictures and simple story outlines. (Now you print them from the CD.) I then organized these and other lesson resources in a file drawer according to the kit’s suggested topics. These simple, structured lessons are key to helping us teach our children the gospel in a way they can understand.
