CEA Suggests: January Minneapolis Autism Parent Support *New Location*
January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
MAPS is connection in action and CEA is glad to suggest this regular meeting opportunity. Their January 17 speaker will be Jillian Nelson of the Autism Society. From the MAPS coordinators: Jillian is “a self-advocate who will be talking about how we as parents can encourage self-advocacy in our children. Jillian is frequent speaker and can regularly be found in the halls of the state capitol advocating on issues affecting the disability community.”
About the group: MAPS meets once or twice a month during the school year. Some meetings are held during the school day, while others are weekday evenings (Monday-Thursday) from 7:00-9:00 p.m. This month, we’ll meet at the Uptown Lunds/Byerly’s Community Room. We typically meet at Common Roots Café in Minneapolis (2558 Lyndale Ave. S.) in the quiet, private meeting room at the back of the café.
Some meetings are “open topic,” which means the entire meeting is used for sharing successes and challenges, as well as parent-to-parent Q&A. Other meetings have guest speakers on specific topics. There is no cost to attending MAPS meetings, and absolutely no obligation to purchase food or drink at the café.
For specific information about upcoming meetings, please email the MAPS Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
