This group is for individuals with autism and Asperger's who are 18 years or older. Our primary focus is to create a fun and engaging environment for individuals on the autism spectrum. If you are on the autism spectrum and looking to make friends and have fun, then this group is for you.

We meet weekly at Service Center for Independent Life and have various activities scheduled throughout the week such as a movie club and video game club, and sometimes we just go out to have a bite, among many other activities. Our attendance is consistent with around 15 or so people showing up per meeting.

All adult individuals on the autism spectrum will benefit by joining this group. The groups are run by Arman Khodaei, an individual on the autism spectrum. His official website can be found at www.empoweringautism.com

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.
