AuSM Skillshops are designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their parents, family members and caregivers. Skillshops also are a valuable resource for educators who work with individuals affected by ASD. Intended for small groups, AuSM Skillshops allow you the opportunity to participate by discussing and solving problems on topics that concern you the most.
AuSM Skillshops are offered on the first Wednesday of each month from 7-9 p.m. and are presented in two concurrent tracks. Track “A” focuses on topics for children affected by ASD, and track “B” focuses on topics important to adolescents, individuals in transition and adults on the spectrum.
The Autism Society of Minnesota is committed to helping individuals, parents, families, caregivers and educators affected by autism build skills, learn strategies and be prepared for real-life situations.
