What is the group’s purpose?
Join the ACRES Project in a peer group focusing on neurodiverse and autistic experiences. The group’s goal is to create a casual, comfortable, and supportive environment for students and provide opportunities to connect with peers who may have similar experiences as members of the college community.

What is the meeting format?
This peer group will meet bi-weekly for one hour. Meetings will be held in-person every other Monday from 6:00-7:00 pm in SDR’s 101 Boucke.

 The group will function under an open format meaning students are welcome to come and go at their convenience! This is not a counseling or therapy session but instead a chance to casually connect with peers.

Who is the ACRES Project?
The ACRES Project (Adults Creating Residential & Employment Solutions) is a local non-profit developed to support adults with autism and foster their social, vocational, and self-advocacy skills. More information is available on their website:  https://acresproject.org/.
