Monthly Support Groups - ALL IN-PERSON MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, BUT YOU CAN JOIN OUR ONLINE SUPPORT GROUPS!

At the Autism Society of Greater Phoenix, we understand what it is like raising a child with autism. Many on our Board of Directors and all who run our support groups have loved ones on the spectrum. These important monthly meetings provide a safe place for parents and individuals with autism to connect with others in similar situations near them. We provide a different speaker each month to help families learn new strategies to help their loved ones. Some meetings provide an activity for children to do during the meeting, while other meetings are for parents only. Some meetings require an RSVP if food is provided, while others you can just show up. See below for more information on dates, locations, and meeting details. Meetings are subject to change, please check the calendar to confirm.
