Uniting the Community Events

2019SFGuideCoverIntroducing AuSM’s Guide to Sensory-Friendly Minnesota, a reference tool and planning guide for families and individuals with autism and other sensory sensitivities. Learn why sensory-friendly events and activities are important, find recommendations for creating sensory-friendly events and activities, read personal stories, and check out the calendar guide of sensory-friendly community events and activities to unite our community.

Click here to access the electronic version of the guide.

In collaboration with community partners, AuSM is pleased to offer opportunities for families and individuals with autism to come together and enjoy fun activities in supportive, welcoming environments. Events and activities submitted by community partners are subject to change. AuSM encourages you to visit the websites provided at least one month prior to attending an event or activity as many require advance registration and some have limited capacity. An event or activity may be postponed or canceled without notice. AuSM does not endorse events and activities included in these listings. We look forward to seeing you out and about in our great community!
