Inclusive Autism Support Groups

We love getting together!

Parents in Toto strives to meet the needs of our community by offering programming both online and in person! Our Fall 2021 schedule offers groups that are free, inclusive, adaptive and focused on the connections made by participants. Join us over Zoom for social and skill based groups such as Cooking with Krystin, Young Women’s Group or Minecraft. Register to attend an in person group like Game Day or Young Adult Group.

We invite you and your family to check them out.

Toto in person Spectrum Support groups:

Masks that cover both the nose and mouth simultaneously are required for all in person groups. We continue to offer online group options for those who do not feel comfortable wearing a mask. We also value gathering “in Toto” at the center and in light of the changing CDC guidelines and virus situation, we maintain consistent uses of masks. We keep disposable ones on hand as needed and also ask that you stay home if you are not feeling well.
