Our Konnect Social Program for Autistic Adults starts Saturday January 29th 2022 and runs for 8 weeks from 12 to 1.30pm GMT each week. 

This course is run online over zoom and offers you an opportunity to connect with other Autistic adults and learn strategies for navigating your social world. This program, like all of our programs is Autistic-led and embraces and celebrates the Autistic way of being and our highly effective way of communicating. It does not impose any non-autistic social goals but offers you support where you need it and each session is tailored to meet the needs of each person within the group.

Our program will also provide you with resources which you may find helpful to share with friends, families, employers and so on. Our social program focuses on building relationships and connecting Autistic people, friends, families and workplaces by educating everyone on Autistic communication because Autistic people cannot do all the work!
