Autism Spectrum Disorder and Your Church
With one in 68 individuals being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, it is likely that your worshiping community already includes someone with ASD. If you are a pastor, worship leader, musician, church school teacher, or church volunteer, discover specific ways to identify, interact with, and worship with persons with ASD.
Using six key areas of difference, this session takes best practices in special education and apply them to a church setting. Leave with a toolbox full of new ideas to try starting next week with both children and adults!
