Free Online Workshops to Facilitate Team-building for Housing and Supports



Mary Nisson and her "techie" Savant Syndrome Autistic son, David Nisson PhD, use their skills help adults with ID/DD and their families build teams for planning living arrangements.

Our workshops are normally the final Saturday of each month via Zoom, but there will be no May meeting. The next meeting is in June, with exact date/time TBA. Registration for the June meeting will begin the first week in June.
