Women with Autism Group is open to women — heterosexual, lesbian/gay, trans, and nonbinary — who are autistic or who think they may be autistic.
We assume we will have mostly women living in the D.C.-Maryland-Virginia area, but since it is to be mainly an online group, we welcome women from much further away if they have a working computer and Zoom capabilities.
A formal diagnosis is not required.
The group was formerly known as the D.C. Area Autistic Women’s, Nonbinary, and Marginalized Genders Group.
If you would like to join the Women with Autism Group, please contact us and put “Women with Autism” or “Autistic Women” in the Subject Line.
All our Zoom events are strictly confidential. There is to be no recording or transcribing, in part or in whole, of any Zoom event.
