Just curious as to what you think. I held a baptism class this last weekend and I got this comment on one of my baptism response forms:

“My child is autistic and I’m not sure how much he really understands. How do you usually address this?

So, what do you do with a child with special needs who’s family has expressed a desire to have him or her baptized (specifically when you are unable to really determine their level of understanding)? I have some thought in my head, but I just thought I’d see what others had to say. Oh, and I haven’t actually talked to the family or child, so I don’t know where this child in particular is.
