Autistic adults, share your stories
Steps for Autism in Minnesota, formerly Steps of Hope, began as an event where individuals and families could gather resources and connect with each other in order to build a stronger community. In honor of the 20th anniversary of this important event, AuSM wants to continue to inspire and celebrate our community by highlighting positive stories from autistic adults. Stories may highlight experiences at home, school, work, in the community, or personal triumphs that have made an impact in your life.
Stories for consideration will include submission of an electronic form as well as a photo of you as a child and a current photo.
We ask that submitted stories are first-person accounts from autistic adults; however, caregivers or Direct Support Professionals may help with the story and photo submission as needed. Selected stories and photos will be included on posters displayed during Steps for Autism 2020. Posters also may be displayed at additional AuSM events in 2020, through AuSM's social media outlets, and on the AuSM website.
