As many organizations are cancelling much needed services and support without offering alternatives, we have decided to expand our free resources. Instead of just offering monthly chat groups, we are going to be offering free chats groups Monday through Friday. These new chats begin March 16th and will go through April.
On Mondays we are offering a chat group for autistic adults.
On Tuesdays we will be offering a chat group for those over 50.
On Wednesdays we will be offering a chat group for women, trans-women and non-binary folks.
On Thursdays we will be offering a chat for LGBTQIA+ Community.
And on Fridays we will be offering a chat for parents or family members of autistics.
Monday-Thursday chats: 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm, Eastern time
Friday chats: 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm, Eastern time
