As summer 2021 draws to a close and we turn our attention to the new academic year, it seems so much has changed, yet so many challenges still lay ahead. While we had hopes we would enter this new academic year by again offering on-site professional trainings and family educational and recreational events, at this time we will continue our offerings virtual and online only. We will keep you posted of any changes as they occur.
Meanwhile, we offer this end of summer issue of Pathways, with our latest news and information to keep you abreast of our work and of resources that continue to be available from MAIER. This includes:
- An Introduction to Autism Research
- Professional Development opportunities
- Highlights of MAIER resources and toolkits for families and caregivers
- Invitation to participate in PEERs research study
You can help us by sharing this newsletter with others interested in MAIER’s work or offerings. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can be of assistance. Contact us by email or phone (207-581-2352)
Best wishes as we enter this fall season,
