The Autism News NetWORK group is held every Thursday from 11AM-1PM. Please check the calendar for exceptions and other details.

This group is for ages 18 and over and will train participants in the use of journalism tools and techniques with the goal of building a television and internet news network focused on the complex world of Autism—treatment, research, education and family life. Educational programming about Autism for families, clinicians, teachers, and researchers will be written, produced, and directed by individuals with Autism. In addition to its educational mission, the Autism News NetWORK will provide critically-needed jobs for adults with Autism.
