Support Groups

AuSM provides a variety of support groups to meet the needs of parents, children, family members, individuals, couples and more. Support groups offer those affected by autism the opportunity to share problems, solutions, joy, and sorrows with one another. Advance registration is required.

Currently our Women’s Support Group, LGBTQIA+ Support Group, and our Independent Adults with ASD Support Group are meeting in a hybrid format. Participants can attend in person or virtually. We ask that you RSVP for any session you would like to attend to help us ensure we can distance appropriately. Our Family Members of Adults with ASD Support Group is still meeting virtually. To get the Zoom link, please e-mail info@ausm.org.

Please make sure you review our Support Group Guidelines before attending.
