The Facebook Pages Koinonia for Exceptional Orthodox Families – Community , Koinonia for Exceptional Orthodox Christian Families, and Deaf Orthodox Christians are ongoing discussions on members’ posts.
One of the audio recordings, The Illumined Heart: Orthodox Christian Psychological Therapy , gets to the very heart of the Orthodox Christian way- repentance (“correct our thoughts” from the Prayer of the Hours) for those of us who struggle with our mental health – which is all of us, if we are honest with ourselves.
Other videos and audio recordings address the disabilities of blindness and deafness. Three of the videos profile monastic orphanages which provide homes for many with developmental disabilities and various other disabilities. See the love that is shared in these places! There is a DVD on autism and a number of audio interviews on family relationships in which one member is an autist as well.
