Autism Society Support Group Meetings
"Our autism support group meets the first Thursday of every month throughout the year. We meet in the 3rd floor board room of Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital, 1708 W. Rogers Avenue, 21209.
Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. with announcements about upcoming activities and brief introductions by our attendees, always including something positive that has occurred in the previous month. Some months we have a speaker or speakers; other months are simply round-table discussions of issues we all face in dealing with autism. Ample time is allowed for questions and follow-up discussion, as well as further opportunity for group support and socialization. Light refreshments are available along with informative handouts. Our extensive lending library is also available on meeting nights. Support group is open to all interested adults – childcare is not available, and some topics may not be appropriate for youngsters.
If you are unable to join us in person, teleconferencing is available."
