Are you looking for a way to educate your congregation about autism, but you aren’t sure how to do it? Do you have members of your congregation with autism that could use a little more support? If so, consider joining the award-winning Autism Faith Network!
We are actively recruiting places of worship to help us promote autism awareness, acceptance and inclusion all over the world! We do this by asking congregations to do at least one activity for autism awareness month in April. Each is welcome to choose their own activity, but we have a list of activities that any place of worship can do. Participants are asked to take a photo of the activity in progress and fill out a short evaluation form. Those that complete the program receive a letter of thanks, a certificate of participation and social media recognition. Watch this short video for more details about how you can join the Autism Faith Network!
Since 2016, we have served 32 churches and over 10,800 people have learned about autism at their place of worship! This year, we hope to reach even more faith based communities than before!
