On November 16th, our Pints for a Purpose recepient is The Autism Society of Minnesota. $1 of every pint sold throughout the evening goes towards their work in our state, and we hope you can join us.
The Autism Society of Minnesota exists to enhance the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorders. AuSM seeks to realize its mission through education support, collaboration, and advocacy.
Goals with a Purpose:
- To inform and educate families, professionals, and the community about autism spectrum disorders and promising interventions that meet individual needs.
- To advocate for appropriate services and rights for people with ASD and their families.
- To support families and individuals through services and relationships.
AuSM’s Use of Person-First Language:
The Autism Society of Minnesota respects the right of individuals to be referred to with language that makes them comfortable. To provide consistent communication with our community, AuSM uses person-first language in our printed materials, social media posts, on our website, in e-mails, and in other forms in which we present public information. Though AuSM has chosen to use person-first language for consistency in communications, we also respect the rights of those who prefer identity-first language. If you are visiting AuSM and prefer that AuSM staff members use identity-first language or another form of address, please let an AuSM staff member know.
