Embrace people with autism into the full life of your church.
This resource offers ten practical strategies to include people

them as people created in God’s image, learning about five
specific disorders included in ASD, and developing an action
plan for ongoing ministry. Reproducible materials include sample
interview questionnaires for children’s and adult ministry,
an observation form, permission forms, a sample job description
for coordinator of children’s ministry, a sample individual
spiritual formation plan, and much more!
