This Meetup site is for Queens-based groups led by members of the Autistic Peer Leadership Group (ApLEG).
The oldest such group is the Queens Discussion Group (http://autisticnyc.org/queens/) , a peer-led support group for adults (18+) who are either officially diagnosed or self-diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition, or who have difficulties similar to those of autistic people (e.g. difficulties with social communication, sensory processing, and/or executive function).
Although new on Meetup as of January 2020, the Queens Discussion Group already existed off-and-on since summer 2018. (It was founded by people who had met each other at older, larger ASD support groups in Manhattan.)
The first of the hobby-oriented social groups is an amateur meteorology club. We hope there will eventually be many more (including -- we hope -- a sewing hobbyists club, at least some of whose members could be of great help to the autistic community as a whole, by making relatively inexpensive custom-made clothes to accommodate a variety of sensory issues).
The first of the career-oriented groups is Autistic Techies of the NYC Area. We hope there will eventually be many more such groups devoted to other categories of professions / occupations / jobs.
All groups currently meet via text-based chat. We hope at least some of them can meet in-person after the COVID crisis is finally over with.
