Death is a difficult topic for any child, but can be more challenging for people with unique learning and processing needs. Participants will explore issues of grief specific to children/teens with autism and other disabilities, and will gain strategies to help navigate questions about death, dying and loss of a loved one all within the context of Jewish rituals and traditions. This session will also highlight effective ways of helping children with learning or developmental disabilities navigate other life transitions and challenges.

Meredith Polsky’s participation in LimmudFest 2018 was made possible with generous support from The Covenant Foundation.
