Be an Autism Hero with the Autism Society of Minnesota 16th annual Steps of Hope Walk.
Autism Society of Minnesota

When I was a teenager, I had the opportunity to babysit for a little boy who had autism.  I can still see his face and his strawberry blonde hair as he tip-toed around his house with incredible agility.

Unfortunately, I was not fully prepared for how I could best care for him.  But thankfully, I had a friend who loved that little boy so much.

She knew exactly what he needed–when he needed space and when to be insistent.  She was a lifesaver for his family and him and a blessing to the whole community.

Tammy was just 15 years old and already an Autism Hero.

I grew up in a small town without many resources for families.  In fact, at the time, this little guy was the only preschooler I knew with autism. I know there were times when his mom felt alone and misunderstood.

The number of kids on the autism spectrum is growing. Community can be built around those affected by autism.

Family Fun Twin Cities is partnering with the Autism Society of Minnesota to help provide resources for families with sensory sensitivities.  Find us at our table at Steps of Hope on Sunday, March 6 at Southdale in Edina.

We are excited to see you there!

You are simply AuSM!
