FILLED – Online “Closed” Support Group Series for Women (18-35) 8/11/20-11/17/20 6:30-8:00 PM EDT

August 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, $10.00











This “closed” adult support group is designed for young women ages 18-35 who are on the autism spectrum. Through this group, young women can build an ongoing connection with a small community of other young women. AANE closed adult support groups also give adults an opportunity to voice their concerns and frustrations. It also lets them acknowledge hard-won and unexpected victories.

Moderator: Kim Wutkiewicz has a long history of working with individuals to navigate challenges and find balance, as both a board-certified acupuncturist and registered yoga teacher. Currently, as the Communications Manager at The Food Project, she spends her days writing about the ways in which people and neighborhoods can work together to thrive through youth development, sustainable farming initiatives, community engagement, and honoring diversity in all of it’s expressions. From 2016 – 2018, Kim worked in AANE’s Development Department, where she wrote extensively about the unique experiences of people living with Aspergers and related profiles, particularly women living on the spectrum. She continues to explore the ways in which neurodiverse perspectives enrich our world and all of our lives.

A strong internet connection and a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone are required for this group.
