AUTISM SOCIETY OF SOUTHEASTERN WISCONSIN INC
May 27, 2010
I volunteer with a consortium of school districts to provide continuing education through monthly speaker programs and approached ASSEW president, Emily Levine, as a possible co-sponsor for a nationally known speaker on autism. This speaker is autistic herself and will be speaking to parents and professionals next fall. Emily advised us on several logistic details of sponsoring an event of that magnitude and will be helping us advertise etc. We are very grateful for the guidance and enthusiasm Emily and ASSEW have provided.
In addition,, through my participation on the Connections initiative, it is clear that ASSEW provides leadership in all aspects of autism spectrum involvement in the state.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
continuing education efforts and referrals to families --I was formerly a Director of Special Education and was able to refer families to ASSEW as a valuable resource.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every six months
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Professional with expertise in this field & I serve on the Connections grant for autism and other disabilities as we are establishing networks and connections for newly diagnosed families. I met Emily Levine, president of ASSEW while working on this initiative.
