Let’s Talk About Growing Up
The Autism Grown Up resource center + 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.
You Belong Here
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.
Dedicated Conversation Space
The Autism Grown Up community is a private space, just for members of the autism community, online. It’s a distraction-free home for all your autism conversations - as opposed to a lot of Facebook groups tend to be!
We have a growing resource library at the heart of the resource center and community.
Our resources are created based on members’ needs and feedback on what they need, current gaps in resources on adulthood (we know there are sooo many gaps!), and what they want to learn more about.
These resources exist for them to use right away at home, school, in the community - wherever they need it most. And remain free for everyone who is a member.
Collaborating and Connecting
We love to watch how our members connect. We’ve seen alliances formed, joint ventures launched, and friendships formed.
Our members host book clubs, make virtual coffee dates, and meet up in their local areas.
✔️ We connect you with a network of hundreds of autistic individuals, families, and professionals while giving you the tools you need to get answers fast.
✔️ We host a resource center and library.
✔️ We provide concierge service so you don’t have to dig through piles of resources to find what you’re looking for or get lost asking for support.
✔️ We showcase the experiences, expertise, and insights of our members (you’re next) so you can take advantage of our collective brilliance as a community.
Whether you need ideas for creating something in your community, want feedback on something new you're trying, need help with independence skills, or want to vent about a frustrating service experience, we’re there for you.
