Autism and Your Church – Nurturing the Spiritual Growth of People with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Written by Barbara Newman, Published by Faith Alive Christian Resources
This book relates the basics about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as well as giving very practical ideas about how to welcome individuals with ASD and best accommodate for differences in worship services, children’s small groups and adult small groups.
According to new numbers released in the area of autism, one out of every 68 people falls somewhere on the Autism Spectrum. Author Barbara Newman feels that with those numbers, it’s clear that most church communities need this information. “It’s my prayer that God will use this resource to better equip church communities to include and welcome persons with ASD.”
