Place of Worship

All people are free to establish their own personal religious beliefs and worship practices. For individuals with ASD there may be elements of discomfort and unfamiliarity in their place of worship. They may also have difficulty participating in customary faith practices or understanding the principles or beliefs of their religion. Religion and worship practices are personal choices, but those with ASD may need support and guidance to understand and practice their faith. Use the tools and resources in the Place of Worship to encourage inclusion within congregations of faith.
