Autism Supports & Services
Youth with Autism often have other diagnoses such as ADHD, anxiety or depression. We will discuss how to support them and how to access services such as Early Intensive Developmental and Behavioral Intervention (EIDBI.) Families can select a tool for their CALM Toolkit. See more below.

About the Event
Learn about autism and common co-occurring neurotypes and mental health conditions from a neurodiverse-affirming perspective. Explore the positives, identify some common struggles, and collaboratively discuss how we can support and empower our neurodivergent friends and family. Then learn about Minnesota’s EIDBI benefit, a package of services and supports offered through Minnesota’s medicaid program. Identify what it offers, eligibility, and how to access these services.
