Connect with us by joining our regional facebook groups, following our pages, or join our online email group closest to where you live! Our groups are for parents, family members, and caregivers of children and adults diagnosed with autism, as well as autistic adults. Students, therapists, and educators involved with ASD are also welcome. We also have in-person and online support groups here.

This is our statewide public page where advocacy alerts, events, and resources will be posted that are available to everyone throughout Texas! Follow us here.
Autistic Adults in Texas
The Adults with Autism in Texas Facebook group is for adults with autism living in Texas. We welcome those with a diagnosis as well as self-diagnosis. Please do not request to join this group if you are a parent or caregiver. Other than the moderators who are staff members at Autism Society of Texas, this page is for autistic individuals to share information and resources. You can request to be added here.

Regional Facebook Pages & Groups
In some regions there is both a Facebook public page and a Facebook closed group. The public page has information that only Autism Society of Texas and moderators can post. Anyone can “like” a public page. In contrast, for groups, you must request to join our closed regional groups by answering the questions on the regional group page. The aim of these groups is to share local information in a friendly, supportive environment. The groups allow for any member of the group to post within the group so members may seek support, ask a question, or share information with other members.
In the Austin-area we have an email group- the Central Texas io Group, (listed below), and also partner with the Austin Special Needs Facebook group.
