Notes: These groups are not meant to take the place of professional therapy, but rather to give participants an opportunity to discuss topics related to autism in a safe and understanding environment. If you have questions about our social and support groups please email us here.
With the current social distancing safety precautions in place, we have moved to a Zoom meeting format for most support groups.
Autistic Adult Support Groups
ASC's Adult Support Groups are a place for autistic adults to connect with others, discuss successes and challenges, share solutions and experiences, and give and receive support. Our Tuesday group leans toward ages 40+ and the Wednesday group leans toward ages in the 20s and 30s, though neither has a firm age requirement. In the last week of the month, all ages of ASC's adult group members are invited to attend the "Last Wednesday" meeting. See our meeting guidelines here.
Tuesdays 7pm to 8pm for age 40+
