About This Community

Ever feel like you're the only -- the only one who's bored by small talk, the only one who can't abide those hateful seams on socks, or the only one to care deeply about learning all the things? Come hang with people from around the globe who are "the onlys" in their lives too.

When you're part of the Autastic Social Club, you're part of something bigger than any one of us. We are adults who found out we're autistic well into mid-life who gather to make new friends, to see our daily lives with new perspective, and for that glorious rarity of finding ourselves mirrored in someone else.

Join one of the only dedicated spaces for late-identified autistic adults where we can:

  • Drop our masks, 
  • Be ourselves, and 
  • Find supportive community because of who we are. 


If you're new to learning about autistic life, an advocate helping others, or somewhere in between, come find your people.

Stay Connected

We All Fit At One Table

In between monthly live events, stay in touch in the Autastic Social Club Lounge. Included in membership, the Lounge is our private discussion group for Zoom session participants.

  • Met someone who shares your interests? 
  • Want to follow up on a resource you offered?
  • Need to check on a link that was mentioned?

The Autastic Social Club Lounge is open 24/7, every day of every month. Because it's a traditional social-media-type space, you don't have to wait for the next live group event to stay in touch. Post questions, comment on conversations, share links to your heart's content.

IT'S JUST US. 

No ads. No distractions. No hassle.


The Lounge experience is for registered members and, as such, is not open to the public.

Real People. Real Feedback.

How Does This Work?

FAQ

  • What happens after my my free trial?

    Your first three months of live events are *FREE* to attend. On the fourth month, your membership in the Autastic Social Club -- including Lounge access -- is USD$5 per month. Membership fees directly fund the cost of hosting the Zoom sessions including the costs of live captioning. You're free to cancel at any time.

  • Is this a class or a seminar?

    This is 100% social time. This space is for us to relax, have a laugh, and get to know others who experience life in familiar ways. No lessons. No homework. No pressure.

  • Is this a diverse & inclusive space?

    Autastic.com and The Autastic Academy strive to be inclusive of all genders, sexual orientations, racial identities, nationalities, heritages, faiths, abilities, and more. To fulfill our mandate of serving the community of autistic people who were identified in adulthood, our membership is restricted to those aged 25 and older. Live captioning provided. AAC welcome.

  • Do I have to have something clever to say?

    You do you. We are a "come as you are" community so however you arrive is brilliant. Take breaks. Hang in the chat. Wear a goofy hat. It's all good. Participate as you feel comfortable.

  • Do I have to attend every live event?

    This is your social time. Skip some events or just hang out in the Lounge. Make the most of your membership in ways that work for you.
