May Events and MORE!

 Hi everyone, hope all is well! Here is a list of events for May:

We will start returning to the regular support groups for adults, teens and girls, as well as special interest groups.

Right now we are looking for a few autistics who would love to host groups and be a part of our leadership team. We will give you the tools you need!!  And have leadership meetings where we help each other. 

If you want to host any of the groups let us know! To learn more contact me!!

We are also revamping our Golden Rules and Conflict Resolution Team. I want to make sure everybody feels safe and comfortable. 

Did you know that we will have laminated rules and guidelines to help us support each other at our meetings? We will look at them when we say hello every time we meet.

We want to help each other and learn and grow together. I want us to be first and foremost a  non-judgmental environment.

Looking forward to seeing you!!!


April 2021 Events

We are starting out this month later than usual, but it’s okay. We’re going to do three special events for Autism Acceptance month. Two of the events will be outdoors. We will practice safety by social distancing and wearing our masks so we can take advantage of the warmer weather. The other event will be over ZOOM. We would love to have all autistics on the autism spectrum of all ages !! 

Through these challenging times we will stay strong and be here for each other and moving on into the summertime and into the future we will make autism acceptance every single day. We will return to our regular support groups for adult autistics, teens and young adults as well as our girls day out group and some and our other special interest groups. We will also return to our mentorship programs,  leadership team, etcetera as time allows.  Hopefully we will  keep the up and up like good things going on like vaccines.  No matter what we will figure out ways we can support each.

We have learned to cope by growing into the Autism spectrum, not out of it. Autistics can be the best mentors and peer supports for other Autistics.”
