AuSM workshops offered in November and December

GroupSelfieWEBAuSM is pleased to offer November and December workshops for the Minnesota autism community. 

AuSM's Nov. 2 workshop at Royal Cliff Banquet & Conference Center in Eagan, "Caring for You: Practical Self-Care Tools to Nurture Well-Being", will be a half-day session from 1:30-4:30 p.m. on caring for the caregiver. Speaker Ricka Robb Kohnstamm will teach about compassionate communication and helping caregivers increase feelings of well-being.

On Dec. 7, Judy Endow, MSW, LCSW, will present "Practical Solutions for Autistic Living", a workshop where she will share personal stories highlighting three challenge areas related to her own autism: 1. sensory differences; 2. not always understanding the hidden curriculum in social situations; 3. when others think of her as “less than” because they do not understand autism. This workshop will be held at enVision Hotel in South St. Paul.
