Hollie M Holt-Woehl "Education and Inclusive Congregations: A Study of Three Congregations" In Journal of Religion, Disability, and Health. vol. 14, no. 2, 2010 : 143-152

Holt-Woehl describes the education practices of three congregations for children with developmental disabilities.

The author also contemplates, amid the complexity of congregational culture, how including people with developmental disabilities in religious education contributed to the creation of an inclusive congregation.
