Getting Together on the Spectrum: Autistic Adult Meet-Up Group
Sometimes it is great to connect with someone who “gets it” and to be recharged and uplifted to keep going for the next little while. This autistic adult meet-up group is a place for adults on the spectrum to share their personal journeys with autism, as well as the challenges they face, in a safe and supportive environment. Everybody’s lived experiences and personal stories are important. Please feel free to join, listen or share! We’ll have some group conversations about the importance of community inclusion, making communities more accessible, and any other topics members of the group want to talk about.

Meetings take place on the 2nd and last Wednesday of every month from 430-6pm PST.
Join us on the computer or by phone.
