Special Needs (JOY Ministry)
Special Needs (JOY Ministry) - Lindale
Our Lindale campus is by far the largest member of the JOY family.  We offer a 730 sq/ft classroom with modified lighting, crash pads, alternative seating, classroom iPads,  and a designated handicap accessible restroom where we teach a modified version of our Grace Kidz curriculum.  In addition to that we offer a 200 sq/ft sensory room with video gaming, a ‘chill tent’,  ball pit, ‘noodle forest’ and both stimulating and calming lights in different areas.
We have students of all ages….from 5 to 45, and are equipped to handle all disabilities.  We have specialized training for autism, Asperger, downs syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, ADD, ADHD, separation disorders and medically fragile students.
We offer classes during the 9:30 and 11:00 services on Sunday, JOYCare on Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 8:30 (normally used by moms who attend bible study) and RESpiTe on the second Saturday of Feb, Apr, June, Aug, Oct and Dec from 2:00-7:00pm. RESpiTe is offered at no charge, and you are not required to attend Grace to come to RESpiTe (though we would LOVE to have you).
Your family MATTERS to us, your family is LOVED by us, and we CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU!!!
