AuSM will use proceeds from the Steps of Hope to continue our efforts in offering information and support to individuals, families and staff in a wide variety of ways. AuSM hosts an annual 3-day conference for parents, educators and service providers, offers educational programs including the Discovery Series for parents of children recently diagnosed with autism, and weekly workshops and support groups. Through our Steps of Hope Support Grant program, we invite Minnesota families, schools and service providers to request financial help to purchase goods and services they need as they work with individuals with autism.
