If you’re a Washington area autistic adult, connect with our community via our Zoom meetings and our e-mail group.

We have more than 460 members in our organization.  We have 25 to 30 members at our Monthly Support Zoom Meetings and our Biweekly Zoom Chats.

Our Monthly Support Zoom Meetings last two hours and have an agenda, which is e-mailed to members before each Monthly Meeting.  Each Monthly Support Meeting features a discussion topic.

Our Biweekly Zoom Chats have no agenda or discussion topics — we informally check in on one another.  Biweekly Chats last one hour and are more intimate, and less formal than our Monthly Support Meetings.

We have the following AAGW Zoom events coming up:

  • Saturday evening, December 10, 2022, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
    Our 214th Monthly Support Meeting.
    Discussion Topic: “Overcoming Isolation and Loneliness”
  • Thursday evening, December 15, 2022, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Autistics Association of Greater Washington, Inc. — a 501(c)(3) nonprofit — serves autistic adults in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and the surrounding region.  Until March 2015, we were known as the Asperger Adults of Greater Washington, Inc.

Our Zoom meetings and our e-mail group are limited to autistic adults in our region.  (A professional diagnosis is not required for membership.)

Those who qualify for membership are encouraged to contact an officer.

Most social activities are open to family and friends. We maintain strict confidentiality of member identities and comments. To protect privacy in our e-mail group, many members use only their first names or use pseudonyms.

Autistics, their parents and other family members often request our list of “Resources for Autistic Adults in Greater Washington.”

We offer our members mutual encouragement, try to connect our members with the right services, organize social activities, and advance our policy interests.
