Acquainted with autism
Sheila Gosney
About the Book

Book reveals what autism is like for a family to deal with. Author shares much emotion and personal experience of her family's life with autism, as her youngest son Taylor is afflicted with autism. Gut wrenching details are shared and each part of the family has their own chapter; mother, father, siblings, extended family, etc. Author shares how autism affects all of family life, including the family finances and especially social freedom of the family. Book is designed to be a ministry tool, as each chapter shares a side or aspect of the life story, but finishes off with a weath of ideas the reader can use to minister and help the families they know who are affected by autism. One powerful chapter is a how-to chapter designed for churches, teaching them how to create ministries of inclusion for kids with autism, blessing the entire family in the process. The author finishes the book by suprising the reader with a chapter filled with hilarious things which have happened in her family, due to the unusual and quirky behavior some autistic kids have.
