- 1 in 34 children in Minnesota diagnosed with autism.
- 100,000 neurodiverse children in Minnesota are aging out of school services.
- 87% of autistic adults live with their parents or caregivers.
MICC stands at the forefront of addressing this need, offering a lifeline to autistic adults aspiring to carve out their own paths in life. By focusing on real-world skills, MICC equips students with the tools necessary for success in both their personal and professional lives, challenging the status quo for neurodivergent adults. As Kelly shares, "Autism doesn't end at graduation." She knows first-hand the importance of support after high school - her son, Michael, is a proud MICC College graduate who is living an independent life!
Our thanks to Neil for providing the platform and engaging us with thoughtful questions, to Kelly for extending the invitation and sharing her son's journey with MICC, and to the listeners of BOB Country for tuning in and supporting our cause. Your interest and support play a crucial role in our mission to empower autistic individuals towards independence!
