Growing up, I never heard about autism. I was out of college before I even met someone that had been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. However, I want to know as much as I can about how to help them, especially when it comes to serving in church. That made this book one that I really wanted to read.
Through the compiled essays, you can get an idea of how people on the autism spectrum experience everyday things. Thankfully, more people are working to undo stereotypes, but there are still those that think neurodivergent people just need to try harder. I realize I still have more to learn, but reading this book gives me a foundation to work with.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
