Practical Tips for Embracing and Welcoming Neurodiverse Individuals


Dr. Holmes has as her guest today, Bree, and they will be discussing what a family with a child on the autism spectrum may experience in a place of worship. Bree is a marketing executive for a large organization in the southeast and has practical tips for places of worship to become more knowledgeable and accessible to families with members with autism. Bree grew up in a home with a brother diagnosed in the 1960s as mentally impaired but today with better diagnostics and understanding of autism would be considered on the autism spectrum with cognitive impairment requiring moderate to substantial support. She is the proud mom of a delightful first grader who was diagnosed with Asperger’s/Autism Level 1 the same year as her husband was diagnosed with the same. Bree provides insight behind the scenes to family life in a family system with autism and practical tips for places of worship to become more welcoming and accommodating.
