For Immediate Release: March 30, 2017
AuSM Contact: Kelly Thomalla, 651-647-1083 ext. 25, kthomalla@ausm.org

(St. Paul, Minn.) March 30, 2017 - The Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) is pleased to announce that Heather Jacobs, a staff member at White Bear Lake Area Schools who works with students on the autism spectrum throughout the district, is one of five winners in the 2017 AuSM Educator Challenge.
Educators in Minnesota and surrounding states were invited to share strategies on how they encourage and motivate their students in the classroom. Jacobs noted that she uses optical illusions, short films, and puzzling photos to show how our brain can sometimes "trick" us.
As a contest winner, Jacobs will attend and present her strategy during Chris Ulmer's keynote presentation at the 22nd Annual Minnesota Autism Conference from 8:30-10:30 a.m. on April 28. Chris Ulmer is a special education teacher and motivational speaker who founded "Special Books By Special Kids", an organization that seeks to normalize the diversity of the human condition under the pillars of honesty, respect, mindfulness, positivity and collaboration.
The 22nd Annual Minnesota Autism Conference, which will take place April 26-29, 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis-Park Place, will feature more than 34 expert-led presentations on cutting-edge topics, 40 exhibitors offering products and services to those affected by autism, the AuSM Bookstore, networking, and much more.
