This is a group for anyone who identifies as being on the autism spectrum and is seeking an accepting and inclusive group of friends for fun and support. Whether you are diagnosed, self-identify, or are questioning your neurotype, you are welcome to join us. Our group welcomes everyone on the spectrum and there is no requirement for verbal communication. If you need a friend or caretaker to accompany you to meetups to help you communicate and interact with the group, you are welcome to do so. We meet 2-3 times per month for discussion or fun activities like museum trips, book discussion, games, movies, and more. Our group is led by autistic adults, for autistic adults, and we hope you will join us!
