Meet a DSAW Leader: Erin

Hi! My name is Erin Miller. I just started working at the DSAW state office in West Allis, and I’m on the autism spectrum. I graduated from UW-Whitewater with a degree in English Writing , and am on both the Autism Society and A.L.A.S board (Alianza Latina Aplicando Soluciones); promoting the independence of people. Everywhere I go, I find connections in our communities! When I worked at an inclusive summer camp, we started out autism-focused.  Then we found *so many people* needed acceptance and inclusion. So we decided to open it up to everyone! When I started lesson planning at DSAW, I learned that both the students and I do better with extra time to think.  People with disabilities are often said to have special needs, but really, everyone needs help sometimes.  With the needed support, we can live great, big beautiful lives! I look forward to connecting with you!
