Autism Spectrum Disorder in children has increased to nearly 120% from 2000, making it the fastest-growing developmental disability known, according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This enriching pamphlet will equip anyone with resources to provide help and support to parents of a newly diagnosed child. The 20-panel pamphlet contains a simple overview that explains Autism, gives stories and descriptions of struggles a caregiver might be likely to experience, and includes Quick Tips and Encouragement sections with comforting Bible verses and quotes. The Help a Friend pamphlet series focuses on the first response by a caring friend to bad news about a loved one. Friends gain the confidence to reach out rather than avoid, equipped with biblical wisdom and practical, time-tested advice from Joni Eareckson Tada.
Joni Eareckson Tada, the Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends International Disability Center, is an international advocate for people with disabilities.
A diving accident in 1967 left Joni Eareckson, then 17, a quadriplegic in a wheelchair. After two years of rehabilitation, she emerged with new skills and a fresh determination to help others in similar situations.
She founded Joni and Friends in 1979 to provide Christ-centred ministry to special-needs families, as well as training for churches. Joni and Friends serves thousands of special-needs families through Family Retreats, and has delivered over 170,000 wheelchairs and Bibles to needy individuals with disabilities in developing nations.
Joni survived stage III breast cancer in 2010, yet keeps a very active schedule. Her newest book, A Spectacle of Glory, won best devotional book in the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association's 2017 Christian Book Awards - it contains fresh biblical insights from her battle with chronic pain. Joni is General Editor of Tyndale's Beyond Suffering Bible, a special edition published for those who suffer chronic conditions, and their caregivers.
