LDS Special Needs Mutuals

Special needs mutual is an activity night for youth and adults with disabilities that is available in some areas to supplement the home ward experience. Special needs mutual programs may also be referred to as activity programs for members with disabilities.

The special needs mutual program should never be used as a replacement for inclusion and participation in home ward activities. Most members with disabilities participate in their home ward activities and the ward family rather than a separate, segregated program. If needed, wards and stakes can call a disability specialist to assist with local efforts to welcome and include all members with disabilities.

If you have questions about a local program, please contact your local leaders.
