Autism Awareness Month

Today is the beginning of autism awareness month. It is an opportunity for all of us to both grow in and to spread awareness about autism.

I will be sharing a number of resources throughout the month. But I want to focus on what churches can do for autism awareness month. Here is my advice.


Seriously, just do something. It does not have to be big. It can be including an insert in your bulletin (which I happen to provide here). It can be a link on the church webpage. It can be doing something special for a family with autism in your church. It can be reaching out to a family in the community. It can be as simple as including autism in one of your prayers.

My point is that anything is better than nothing. Autism awareness is growing but unfortunately churches have not caught up with the rest of society.

So if you are in the position to do something in your church, do it.
