The fifth annual Autistic Community Summit will be held in-person on Sep. 17, 2022, at the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain. Sessions will also be available virtually through livestream, and will be recorded and available to attendees after the event. All in-person attendees are also welcome to access the virtual content.
The purpose of the Autistic Community Summit is to provide a space for community building and sharing the knowledge and perspectives of Minnesota’s autistic community. AuSM’s goal is to give helpful information for people at all levels, including those who are new to autism and those who have years of experience. It is also AuSM’s goal that all Community Summit presenters are neurodivergent. “Our Autism Community Summit was created by people with autism and for people with autism – people like me,“ said AuSM Community Engagement Manager Zephyr James.
This year’s event features Said Shaiye as our keynote speaker, breakout sessions, and an end of the day social time with three different areas to connect with others in your own way!
