2014 Workshop

Special Needs: Understanding Autism: A Family and Church Perspective


Special Needs ministries benefit from understanding the unique challenges faced by families affected by autism. Why might a parent be guarded in disclosing important information about their child? Why might families register for worship or a respite event, but "No Show" without warning? What practical strategies could help both ministry leads and families be more effective in ministering, and being ministered to? Hear insight from an autism parent/special needs ministry leader: how autism impacts families and the ministries striving to support them.
