Nella Uitvlugt, executive director of Friendship Ministries, has just posted a recording of her popular Autism and Children's Ministry webinar on the Friendship website! Nella first shared this workshop with an eager crowd at the 2008 Children's Pastor's Conference in San Diego, CA. Since then, Nella has offered it live via webinar and received many requests for a recorded version that churches can share with their entire teaching team. Now it's here!! To view this newly updated version, simply fill out this registration form and click to play!
With Autism Awareness Month just around the corner in the US, and new studies showing that 1 in 91 people are somewhere on the Autism Spectrum, this is a timely and helpful tool for ministry.

Helping Kids Include Kids with Disabilities, and Autism and Your Church by Barbara J. Newman are available from Faith Alive Christian Resources.
