An Important Message from Milestones
Milestones Autism Resources stands with the black community and those speaking out against injustice and inequality across the country.
The work of Milestones Autism Resources is deeply rooted in the mission of creating a more inclusive tomorrow. Our organization prioritizes work that addresses gaps in service, supports the underserved and brings about positive change.
This year's conference theme of
“Together We Can”
is not only a theme, but a mantra for Milestones. Each of you informs our work and is a partner in our efforts to improve outcomes for all individuals with autism.
We continue to listen to our families. Based on their concerns, we established the Milestones Diversity Taskforce in 2018 and hired Salina Miller as Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coordinator. We developed trainings in unconscious bias for healthcare providers, and safety engagement for self-advocates and police.
Diversity is woven through all of our services, including our conference. We hope you will join the conversation. Milestones will continue working and we need your help to address disparity and inequity.
We hope you and your family stay safe and healthy,
