Neurodiversity-affirming Social Groups
A safe facilitated online space to meet other neurodivergent adults and hear about their experiences living in the neurotypical world --- a space to share the journey towards identity, understanding and acceptance.
Virtually via Google Meet
Please see dates and times below
There will be five to six people per group - with a neuro-affirming facilitator to support group discussion. See below for the profiles of our neuro-affirming facilitators who will host the groups as well as information to help you decide if an online social group is right for you.
Once we receive your expression of interest we will email you a quick electronic questionnaire you can complete on-line in 2 to 3 minutes. After that, we will offer you a place in a group or contact you for further information.
Groups are run over 6 weeks - 6 sessions = $450.
You can pay privately or use your NDIS funding.
There are no Medicare or health fund rebates possible.
Here are some of the upcoming groups we are running over the next few months.
Please contact us for further information about upcoming groups if there are no future dates available.
If a social group is marked as 'full' - let us know if you would like to be placed on our cancellation list so we can contact you if a place becomes available.

Is an online neurodiversity affirming social group right for me?
You may be well suited to an online social group if you are:
Willing to have your camera and microphone turned on.
Willing to participate verbally or through assistive technology.
Able to keep up with the conversation in a small group setting.
Able to listen to other people's perspectives.
On the journey towards becoming neurodiversity affirming
An online social group is probably not right for you if you:
Are acutely mentally unwell or suicidal
Are likely to become distressed talking to other people in a small group situation.
Wish to talk about death, suicide, self-harm, or other very sensitive topics.
See neurodivergence only as a disorder, deficit, problem or tragedy.
Like making derogatory or stereotyped comments (including 'jokes') about neurodivergence, mental illness, disability, age, sex/gender, or other personal characteristics of participants.
Tend to behave in a dominating, angry, argumentative, aggressive, or abusive manner.
* We reserve the right to exclude or remove anyone from our group programs if we do not consider them suitable, or if they breach our group rules.
