Welcome to the Pittsburgh Autism/Asperger’s Discussion Group and Social Meetup!
This support group is a Discussion Group and Social Outings Group for adults 18 and older who are on the autism spectrum and live in or near the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area.
This group is sponsored by the Autism Connection of PA. Visit the website at: autism-support.org
About The Discussion Group:
The Discussion Group is a social group for adults on the autism spectrum who want to have friendly and supportive conversations with other adults on the spectrum. It is not a therapy group or a support group.
The Discussion Group is run and facilitated by April Artz and Valerie Lavalle. Occasionally, the group features speakers who provide information that is useful to people on the spectrum.
This group meets in Squirrel Hill twice per month, on the second Sunday of the month.
After every meeting, group members are invited to gather at local restaurants to continue their conversation and socialization.
About the Social Outings Group:
The Social Outings Group is for adults on the autism spectrum who want to participate in social events in a friendly and supportive environment.
Our events often include potlucks, visits to local museums, trips to Kennywood, and sponsored walks. The Social Outings Group usually schedules one social outing per month.
The Social Outings Group is facilitated by Heather Conroy. Group members are encouraged to suggest social outings that they would like to participate in for future events.
New members must be approved by the Organizer

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.
