26. The Spiritual World of Autistic Children (L1-2-3)0 (0)
Most recent studies show that one in every 88 children in the USA are diagnosed with autism. While on one end of the spectrum are child prodigies, on the other end low-functioning children are institutionalized because they need 24 hour care. Experts don’t know what causes this mysterious neurological disorder and they say there is no cure. But with all the other issues, some are highly sensitive to the spirit world. This is what we want to know more about. This session covers three areas: 1) What autism is and what it looks like 2) The spiritual component of these children 3) How churches can set up their children’s ministries to be friendly to these children and their parents. This teaching is extremely helpful and informative especially for people who know very little about this issue.
