This article focused on how a family’s faith and religion helped to support them and their autistic children. I used this article to help me understand the possible benefits that children could have by being involved within their church. This is the article that sparked my idea of a difference in the structural environments of church services. From my own personal experience, I notice that the autistic child I babysit often deals a little better with an environment that is structured, and I wondered if the same would be applicable to how stressed they would be in different church environments.
