There are a variety of Bible study curricula available for teaching people with intellectual disabilities.  Each resource has its own strengths and differences from other materials.  Connection Ministries is not recommending one curriculum over another, but we do recommend that you use materials developed for adults when you teach adults.

Using a professionally developed curriculum will reduce the time required to prepare for your Friendship group. It will also provide a balanced teaching plan for the year.  We encourage teachers beginning a ministry for the first time to use a professionally developed curriculum.  If you prepare your lessons, we also provide links where you can purchase printed posters or download free images.

Let us know if you have used resources that we have not listed below and send your information to
