From The Church of England Newspaper:
 
'This years Autism Awareness Week (AAW) will highlight the experiences of people with autism, and their families, while churches all over the country are being asked to pray for the autistic community.

A website, set up in memory of Vernon Corea, a leading supporter of Autism Awareness Campaign UK who passed away in 2002, invites churchgoers to say the autism prayers written by the late campaigner.

There is still a great deal of suffering as parents, carers and people with autism struggle without public services in health, education, specialist speech therapy and respite care, organisers of the campaign said.'
