girl with autism and friendsDo you know someone affected by autism? Perhaps a family member, neighbor, or someone at your church? With nearly one in every 100 births resulting in a diagnosis of autism - and that statistic is changing rapidly - you're sure to know someone touched by this spectrum disorder. As families are struggling, churches need help. As Joni and Friends highlights National Autism Awareness Month, we’re sharing a list of guidelines for preparing your church to embrace a family affected by autism. Download this great list of Autism Inclusion Strategies including pre-inclusion ideas and inclusion strategies. Do you have other autism inclusion strategies? Please share them with us!

We have a 10 yr. old grandson with autism. This past week, my wife and I spent 4 days at our daughter's house and I learned that you have to work slowly and in his time to deal with issues and his affection. However, he is a loving child that he does not want to be forced to love.
