2023 Prayer Guide
We believe that it is important to nurture the faith of children through worship and prayer. This belief includes children with disabilities, and we are happy that you are partnering with us to spread this important message.
The Autism Faith Network began in 2016 with the goal of equipping faith-based communities to become more autism friendly. Here’s how it got started.
We seek to spread autism awareness, acceptance and inclusion in local and faith-based communities all over the world! Learn more about our mission and goals.
