Making Sense of Autism: Part 2

Part 2: Truth for the Church

Part two: Autism is on the rise in America. But its causes remain unknown, and a cure is yet to be found. Common misunderstandings include the notions that children with autism are not able to learn, or that their behavior is simply the result of poor discipline. In Part One, you’ll see these myths dispelled, as you look into the lives of families that include a child with autism. Part Two addresses a crucial question: What is the role of the church in the lives of families affected by autism? Find out what these families need most from the church – as well as the blessings that come from including every person in the body of Christ. Special Features Part 2: Barbara J. Newman, author of Autism and Your Church, offers expert advice on how your church can welcome and include children with autism and their families.
