Support Groups

This is a supportive community space open to both undergraduate and graduate students who are on the autism spectrum. We will meet once a week via Zoom to connect and converse with others on selected topics of mutual interest.  

Due to the open and online nature of this virtual drop-in space, this is not private or confidential though participants are encouraged to be respectful and practice discretion. This is intended to be an interactive support space, not group therapy. 

Facilitated by Motoni Fong Hodges, Ph.D.

Dates and Time: This Autism Support Group will meet weekly on Thursdays from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET from June 9-August 11, 2022.

For more information, please email Dr. Motoni Fong Hodges at [email protected] with "Autism Support Group" in the subject line. 

Do you feel stuck in your present situation, whether procrastinating, waiting for the next flight after your reservations were cancelled, waiting for a visa or job offer, not knowing which direction your career will take?

When we get “stuck” we often feel frustrated, sometimes helpless, we can act impulsively or make things worse by not taking pause.  These pauses, however, can be an opportunity for reflection and growth.

Join us for this Virtual group and we will address how to make the best of being stuck by connecting with others and problem solving together. 

We will learn new tools and practice relaxation exercises and cognitive behavior strategies.

Due to the open and online nature of these meetings, our support space is not guaranteed to be private or confidential though participants are encouraged to be respectful and mindful of each other and to practice discretion. In addition, please note that this is an educational and support space; it is not group therapy. The facilitator respectfully requests that all participants have video enabled during the meetings.
