Autistic Adults Social Groups

This group focuses on adults that are looking for a positive and safe environment to foster social development.  The group meets twice a month (once at the Spectrum meetings and one social outing a month) with 1-2 adult leaders who are trained in helping people on the Autism Spectrum. Adults who have HFA/Asperger’s Syndrome and are reaching out for help and/or seeking friendships with people with similar issues and interests are welcome!  For more information about this group, please contact our group leader, Nicky Altikulac, BCBA at (404) 394-3382 or or

Members of this group need to be out of high school in order to join the group.  Our current members are generally high school graduates, attend college, or are working. Those attending the outings must be able to do so with minimal supervision (1 to 10).

Spectrum has partnered with Emory School of Nursing in starting a Women Only Group for women ages 18 and up with HFA/Asperger's meeting twice monthly via Zoom currently. Contact Dr. Susan Brasher to be added to the email notification list and for an invitation to join the private FaceBook page
