AAoM Education Pillar

AAoM Education Pillar

AAoM’s Education pillar drives initiatives that address systemic barriers to education, focuses on
student-centered advocacy, and educates families on related topics – working towards its goal to make
Michigan a top 10 state in preparing students with autism for the most independent life possible,
through an accessible, high-quality, and inclusive education.

SEE Survey

The Statewide Special Education Experience (SEE) Survey was conducted in 2023 to understand the current state of special education in Michigan from the lived experiences of families and students. The survey findings will inform collective advocacy efforts and drive systems-level change to improve outcomes for students with disabilities in Michigan.


The Michigan Parent, Advocate & Attorney Coalition (MiPAAC) powered by the Autism Alliance of Michigan is a statewide group focused on student-centered advocacy. MiPAAC aims to educate families of students with disabilities on specific topics relevant to their advocacy efforts.

Special Education Coalition

The Special Education Coalition of Michigan convenes stakeholders from multiple agencies across Michigan to collectively identify priorities to address issues that exist across our special education system.
