Spectrum Adult Programs

Autism is a journey . . . . don’t take it alone. Adults on the Spectrum need support, friendship and camaraderie just like everyone else. We are here for you and can help you find activities and a group that will welcome you, just as you are.

Goals:

  • Connect adults living with autism.
  • Share experiences and learn from others.
  • Have an accepting group to help you celebrate life’s milestones and support you when things are tough.

It is an accepting group that will welcome you as you are; you do not have to pretend at this group, neurodiversity is embraced and celebrated here! Activities include discussion time, celebration of birthdays, dances, holiday parties, board games, pizza and other activities chosen by the participants.
