Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM)

A nonprofit organization

The mission of the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) is to enhance the lives of individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. AuSM serves Minnesotans throughout their lives with a fundamental commitment to advocacy, education, support, collaboration, and community building.

Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in Minnesota – it affects essential human behaviors such as social interaction, the ability to communicate ideas and feelings, imagination, self-regulation, and the ability to establish relationships with others. With a prevalence rate of one in 36 Minnesotans as autistics, the autism community is all of us – it’s your neighbors, your co-workers, your friends, and their families. 

The autism community needs an organization that listens to them and prioritizes the needs on the ground – and a partner who’ll be an advocate without judgment, and with creativity through active listening. In the last year, we’ve worked with our community to create the most inclusive Autistic Community Summit yet – a blueprint for additional adult programming being strategically developed for 2023. We’ve vastly expanded our online resources while safely moving programs back to in-person to serve more people than ever through education and counseling. We’ve increased our advocacy for inclusivity and accessibility while further consulting with organizations and companies to foster a greater understanding of the strengths and challenges of people with autism. 

Your support helps us create connections that empower everyone in the autism community with the resources needed to live fully. AuSM’s drive for continuing this work is strong – we constantly look for ways to serve you even better. Donations stay in the Minnesota autism community, and every dollar counts.
