SW WA Adults on the Spectrum Support Group

SW WA Support Group for Adults on the Autism Spectrum

Peer to Peer – Resources – Empowerment

Journey

Are you an adult on the autism spectrum looking for support and the opportunity to connect with others who may be traveling a similar journey? Come join us!

Autism Empowerment offers a monthly support group open to adults of all ages with Autism / Asperger’s or who believe they may be on the autism spectrum. Our group is coed and peer led. In the future, we may have breakout sessions by gender based upon interest.

If there is demand, we may do occasional service volunteer projects or connect for social activities.  Part of the support group is also providing you with meaningful resources that you can take home and connect with.

The goal is a support group where people feel included, accepted and respected and become enriched and empowered along the way. If this sounds like something of interest to you, please feel free to check us out and know upfront that it is okay to be anxious. (Chances are, many of us in the room will feel that way too!)

When does the group meet?

The group meets the 2nd Friday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm (Sometimes we’ll stay later if needed.)
