“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

AUTISM: New Attitudes, Approaches, and Assumptions: Event 10 July 2014

AUTISM: New Attitudes, Approaches,
and Assumptions

A 2014 CIHR Café Scientifique Event

How do parents treat and care for their children after a diagnosis? How do educators and communities respond to the needs of persons of any age with autism in order to best serve them in their ongoing development? How can I better understand what it feels like to have autism? 

These and many other questions will be answered through our Café event. The objective of the Café will be to showcase the latest research on autism, make the public aware of resources and support networks available, and promote recent advances of those diagnosed with autism.
