These groups are an accessible way for fellow Autistic adults (age 18+) to get together to chat in a safe space.
- Mondays: Chat group using video & audio meeting on Zoom
- Patreon-only Facebook groups
- LGBTQIA+ community for Autistics
- Autistic Women, Femmes, and Non-binary Folx
- Over 50s autism spectrum group
