From the Board of Directors

Farewell Notice 

It was with appreciation and regret that the CEA Board of Directors accepted the resignation of Shannon Andreson as our Executive Director this January. Over the past few years many of you have met Shannon at our lectures or at the Ale for Autism event. Others have come to know her through the blogs she posted on this website.

All of us have learned from her insights into parenting a child with autism.

She shared both her knowledge and her strong belief in the potential of our children. Shannon enriched CEA in many other ways. She created and managed the website, and wrote numerous blogs and the newsletter. She also developed and delivered educational presentations for parents and agencies such as the Hennepin County libraries. Through her tireless efforts she created Sensitive Storytimes for libraries and a poetry camp for children with autism. Many of our community lectures were topics that Shannon championed, such as twice exceptional, therapy animals, and poetry writing.

Shannon understood the value of working in collaboration with others in the community. She helped CEA work with police departments, state agencies, schools, provider agencies, libraries and arts groups. The Center for Engaging Autism will miss her friendly smile and her commitment to our families living with autism. We all thank her for her work at CEA.
