Women's Autism/Autistic Project


The Women’s Autism/Autistic Project (WA/AP) aims to bring Autistic women and teen girls together to connect with each other in a safe and welcoming environment. Recognizing that women can experience autism differently to peers who are of other genders, the Women’s Autism/Autistic Project aims to create a safe and comfortable environment for autistic women/women who have autism to connect and relate to one another. The project aims to provide new opportunities for making friends, share meaningful experiences, mutual interests, and empowerment.
