Call the church you are interested in and ask if they have a special needs advocate. More and more churches do.

Bump is just a term that means they're responding so your post is "bumped" to the top, making it more visible and giving you a better chance of more responses.

Regardless of what religion you are it is hard taking autistic kids to church. I bet some church members may know about autism but they will probably learn most about it from you.I hope you find people in your church who will be compassionate and supportive in you bringing your child to church. Good Luck. I have found the more consistent your attending is in time the behavior will improve.

we are in the same predicament with our 'Special K'. It was much easier when he was a baby but now it is unbareable. there are moments in church when everyone is silent for prayer and that's not gonna work out for our 'Special K' very well. we reside in the heart of the bible belt and have yet to find a comfortable place to worship with our special needs child. Good luck on finding a church tho.

Here's hoping you get some good advice. 

I personally don't go to church. 

You could always talk to the people that are with her to help them help her deal with it better. Of course, not all people would be willing to do this either.
