The Autism Grown Up community connects autistic individuals, families, and professionals across the spectrum and lifespan to get real about what’s working–and what’s not.
We trade notes on day-to-day strategies, resources, adult services, job prep, and independent living. We share what’s happening behind the scenes and talk honestly about the ups & downs.
When you join us, you get access to honest, ongoing discussions about the inner workings of the autism community.
Our community is a mix of autistic adults, parents, siblings, caregivers, family members, teachers, and professionals.
One of the strengths of our network is the diversity of experience and perspective you can draw on whenever you want support.

We create programming and resources to fill in gaps of need when it comes to a number of areas that become important in the prep and navigating parts of adulthood. From IEP supports to finding and developing meet up groups to self-advocacy trainings and more, we're in this to support you.
