Even typically developing children sometimes have difficulty with the transition between childrens' activities at church and "Big Church", meaning the adult worship service. This transition, which takes place when a child ages out of Sunday morning children's activities, can be particularly difficult for children with ADHD, developmental delay, or intellectual disability. Some parents resort to bringing an iPad or other digital media in order to keep their child occupied. While this is an option, there may be some other measures that can be put in place to help children to more actively engage in worship.
