Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States and around the world. Many people either personally know or know of an individual with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These individuals and their families often face overwhelming daily challenges which can cause tremendously crippling emotional, financial, physical, and social burdens.
The Presence of God in Autism is a Bible study guide written by a mom of a child with autism as a resource for ASD families, particularly moms and those who wish to minister to them. Each chapter explores a verse or short passage of Scripture, offers personal applications related to the ASD journey, aims to help address some common feelings of isolation, and seeks to point to Jesus Christ and the assurance of His constant presence in this turbulent but beautiful life journey.
