Group for Students on the Autism Spectrum

as we are

McBurney Disability Resource Center is proud to work with folks at the Waisman Center to offer a weekly group for UW students on the autism spectrum.  If a student with whom you work discloses being on the autism spectrum, please do share the information below with them.

The group is called AS WE ARE, which stands for Autism Spectrum Well-being, Education, Aspiration, and Relationship Empowerment. It is a group for students on the autism spectrum, started by someone on the spectrum, and driven by student-input. The goal of the group is to offer a chance for students on the autism spectrum to connect with others on the spectrum to discuss strengths, successes, personal knowledge, and share hopes, frustrations, questions, and strategies with each other. By having an open discussion on topics selected by group members, the group hopes to offer a chance for empowerment, community, and recognition as a complete person. One person on the spectrum, as well as one neurotypical person facilitates the group.


The group will be held every Thursday of the semester from 5-6:15 PM at 702 W. Johnson Street. There is  also a component of the group on Facebook. Students can join the group by sharing their Facebook profile name with at Students can also direct further questions about the group to that email as well.
