The Not-So-Typical Autism Support Group focuses on the wellbeing of the caregivers of autistic children.  We are based on the principle that in order to provide the best for your child, you must provide the best for yourself.

Provided by Hope4Autism in partnership with Wild Heart Coaching, the Not-So-Typical Support group focuses on helping parents of autistic children open up new possibilities and choices in their lives.

Join us on Tuesday, January 8th for an evening with Sharon Gutterman, Ph.D, an expert in mindfulness and mindfulness-based stress reduction.

During this meeting you will learn to:

  • Reduce your reactivity in challenging situations
  • Calm your nervous system and cultivate inner peace
  • Handle strong emotions with more ease
  • Refresh yourself throughout the day


Refresh yourself throughout the day.

Parking:  Park at the Market 21 garage on the right side of Asylum Street between Trumbull Street and Ann Uccello Street for only $2 with validation.


Refreshments are provided!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
