About Us

We’re here to help our members convert uncertainty into confidence, inactivity into advance, isolation into friendships, and public unfamiliarity into understanding and support.

The Autistics Association of Greater Washington, Inc. — then called the Asperger Syndrome Adults — was founded by six “Aspies” on February 20, 2005.

We have more than 500 members in our organization.  We have 20 to 30 members at our Monthly Support Zoom Meetings and our Biweekly Zoom Chats.

Prior to the Pandemic, we met monthly at Teaism Penn Quarter in downtown Washington, D.C.  In Spring 2022, we resumed our (mostly outdoor) social activities.

Our meetings and the identities of our members remain strictly confidential. Membership, our Zoom meetings, and our e-mail group are limited to autistic adults in our region.

We do whatever it takes to help our members — trying to connect them with the right services, inspiring confidence, organizing social activities, reducing isolation, and advancing our policy interests.
