Description:

The Women’s Autism/Autistic Project was created by two autistic women who experienced gaps in groups and programs for women. Many of the programs offered through Autism Nova Scotia were largely attended by men and the founders wanted to create a space where women could feel safe and supported and with people with shared experiences.

The project has quickly grown and now has a dedicated autistic facilitator. WA/AP has expanded to now offer a cohort for teen girls. In the teen group, discussions are led by a facilitator and focus on topics such as mental health, and activities such arts and crafts and trivia. The women’s cohort is less structured and conversations flow more organically.
