As many of you know who have read my blog for long, know that I have 3 little guys with Autism. I am not sure what is worse, when we first found out about the diagnosis or now, it just seems that the challenges change instead of get easier! But one thing that was VERY hard and still is, is taking your child to church!
My boys are so much better than they have been sitting for an hour at a time and not disrupting EVERYONE at church, to only a few on certain Sundays'. But its hard to leave them with their Primary (Sunday School) teachers when they don't know ANYTHING about your autism diagnosis and has never had any experience with children with Autism.
A friend of mine has written a book to help those caring for our loved ones a guide to help them better serve! Although some may not take their children to church or attend, but this book I found is not only aimed for church settings, but anyone who is put in charge of those with autism, whether it is a gathering of friends to a school teacher. So I encourage you all to find this book and check it out!
Danyelle has a son with Autism and has also help found Friends of Giant Steps which coincides with Giant Steps Autism Preschool, which her son and all of mine have attended! I believe she knows her stuff!
