Tuesdays at the Capitol
It may seem scary, but it really isn't!!!
JOIN US! – Each Tuesday during the legislative session the Autism Advocacy & Law Center (AALC) will join with the Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (MN-CCD) at the Capitol to help people share their stories about the importance of Intensive Early Intervention Behavior Therapy (IEIBT) services with their legislators. We absolutely need to ensure there is a community presence at the Capitol and Sheri Radoux will be there every Tuesday to help you; Sheri and Pia willing to just about to do anything to help you find the time and words you need.
