2019 Table Talk Conversationalist – Ellie Wilson
Executive Director of the Autism Society of Minnesota
Ellie Wilson has been working to support children, teens and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders for 14 years. After pursuing study in public health administration and policy, Ellie completed two fellowships-one with Minnesota LEND (Leadership and Education in Neuro-Developmental Disabilities) and one with the National Institute of Educational Leadership. Ellie has worked to promote autism inclusion, support and celebration in settings relevant to recreation, K-12, transition and post-secondary education, clinical intervention, and community living. Her specialty is fostering energized, healthy community partnerships to promote the evolution of our inclusive societal landscape for individuals on the spectrum or with other disabilities. One of Ellie’s proudest collaborative consultations is with the Children’s Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota team, who have been working diligently with Ellie since 2016 to elevate the quality and continuity of healthcare for patients on the autism spectrum.
