Social Groups


A.W.A.R.E. is a social group for adults with autism (ages 18+) who are able to participate in group events with minimal support or supervision. This group meets for monthly, low-cost outings throughout the metropolitan Kansas City area. Types of activities include karaoke, playing miniature golf, and playing board games at favorite eating establishments. Attendees are expected to provide their own transportation to in-person activities. Each month, the Calendar of Events will be updated with the date(s), time(s), place(s), and activities for this group. Please sign up for our e-newsletter for the most current information about A.W.A.R.E. events. If you have any questions about the A.W.A.R.E. group please email ashofficeasst@gmail.com.

A.W.A.R.E. Activities:



Generally, These events will be held on the 3rd Tuesday of Each Month.

 One month, we will meet at a restaurant to eat together, catch up, and perhaps play some table games.  The next month, we will have an activity to participate in together.  Periodically, we will also have special events (Barbecue, Christmas Party,...)



T(w)een Social Group

This is a social group for tweens and teens with autism (ages 11-16) who are able to participate in social events with some supervision. We want to make this a fun and enjoyable time for everyone! Parents or caregivers will need to assist in chaperoning their loved ones at in-person AND virtual events. Siblings and peer friends that are in this age group are more than welcome to join in on the fun! Each month, the Calendar of Events will be updated with the date, time, and place for this group. Please sign up for our e-newsletter for the most current information about the T(w)een Social Group. If you have any questions about this group please email ashofficeasst@gmail.com.

Our TWEEN activities are on hold due to a lack of participative engagement,  Please email us your interest and we will add you to our list for future events.  Thanks!
