Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book’s easy-to-use lessons and multi-sensory approach are just right for teaching children with ASD. … The practical tips will help congregations engage all children with opportunities to grow in faith. The lessons can be adjusted to accommodate varying degrees of cognitive abilities. The contemplative questions for parents and caregivers are a wonderful guide that can facilitate fellowship and help family members express underlying sentiments that often remain unspoken. … this book is an essential tool for every faith community that wants to provide meaningful participation to all its members."
Sister Kathleen Schipani, IHM, and Mrs. Lori Brew
The Department for Pastoral Care for Persons with Disabilities
Archdiocese of Philadelphia

"An indispensable reference tool for any parent and educator who believes in the timeless values, lessons, and mores inherent in religious history and practice. Kudos to Labosh for filling such a vital need within the exceptional community."
Aviva Engel, Editor, Exceptional Family
