Autism Awareness: How the Church Can Be Prepared
Kelli offered a workshop at the 2014 Quadrennial Women’s Assembly in Atlanta on June 26 to a wonderful group interested in making their church and congregation more accepting and friendly to families of children with autism. Below are some resources and links discussed in the workshop.
Thank you to all for a wonderful discussion!
If you have any questions about this material or would like for Kelli and Chris to present at your place of worship, please contact us.
