Join Us at the 2019 Steps for Autism Walk

Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 3rd!
8:30am – 11:00am; Southdale Mall

The 19th Annual Steps for Autism (formally Steps for Hope) is just around the corner, and we are busy preparing to take part in all of the festivities. This event is hosted by the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) and is known as the state’s largest autism resource fair. If you or someone you know is on the spectrum, you won’t want to miss this event as an opportunity to connect with resources in your community, and to support a great initiative. Steps for Autism dollars directly support local families and individuals living with autism, from birth through retirement, and all donations stay in the community by funding AuSM’s innovative programs and services.

Don’t forget your superhero attire! Each participant is an Autism hero, rallying for the 1 in 42 individuals living with Autism in Minnesota.

We are so excited to participate as both walkers and as an exhibitor in the resource area. Be sure to come see us and learn more about our Autism Services for Teens, where we will be highlighting our robust summer schedule for our Autism Spectrum Disorder Social and Emotional Development Program. This is a specialized, intensive program for adolescents and teenagers with difficulty regulating their emotions and struggling with social skills. Pick the group with dates and times that work best for you and your family, and schedule an intake with one of our practicioners today. PLUS: If you register by the early-bird deadline of March 31st, you will receive a FREE therapy ball as a token of our thanks!

If you have questions regarding the walk, please contact the Autism Society of Minnesota at 651-647-1083.

If you would like to talk with someone in our Specialty Programs division regarding our Autism services for teens, you can reach us via phone at 952-444-2099 or email

We hope to see you there! Stay tuned for photos from the event. We will be sharing them via our Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
