Autism and Faith: A Journey into Community

Autism and Faith cover

This publication is a collaborative product of The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Autism New Jersey (formerly COSAC), and The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation. The project and first printing were generously funded by a grant from The Daniel Jordan
Fiddle Foundation. The second printing was funded by the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of
Developmental Disabilities.

Autism and Faith grew out of the efforts and concerns of families and congregations who were looking for ways to include children and adults with autism in faith communities. With articles by family members, theologians, pastors, rabbis, people with autism, and professionals, the booklet contains facts about autism, pastoral care, religious education, strategies for supporting families, tips for lay people, and a listing of religious and public resources.  The articles are highlighted by real life stories from a number of families who responded to an autism and faith survey.

2008, 2011. 52 pages. PDF only. Hard copies are out of print.
