Online Chat Groups
monthly weekly chat groups moderated by GRASP through our Zoom Chat Room with Aspies, Autistics, and individuals on the Autism Spectrum. These groups are an accessible way for fellow Autistic adults (age 18+) to get together to chat in a safe space.
We recently added a parents and families chat to support the neurotypical (NT) members of our community. We would be happy to consider adding a NT partners/significant others group and a clinicians chat if there is interest.
We require all GRASP Online members to follow our social media guidelines for chatting behavior. Because of the increased attendance to groups, reservations will be required for Mondays’ and Tuesdays’ chats. Currently, these chats will be limited to 20 participants.
Current chat groups:
- Mondays: Chat group for Aspies using video & audio- RSVP required and limited to 20 participants
- Tuesdays: Chat group for Aspies allowing typing only- RSVP required and limited to 20 participants
- Wednesdays: LGBTQIA+ group
- Thursdays: Women, Transwomen, and Non-binary Folx group
