Autism Community Group

The Autism Community Group is an eight-week event series that will function as a space for resources, information sharing, support, and strategies.

This is an open group available to all students.

If you are interested, please email Tressa at The Workshop series will be delivered over Microsoft Teams on Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. and will start January 18. Please review the Microsoft Form to share the topics that interest you.
