Welcome To The Iowa City Autism Community!



Who We Are

We are a group of parents of children on the autism spectrum as well as autistic adults who work together to create connections, meaningful dialogue and autism advocacy in our community.

What We Do

The Iowa City Autism Community (formerly the Iowa City Area Autism-Asperger Syndrome-PDD Family Group) creates a place, both online and in person, for autistic individuals, their friends and families living in the Iowa City and surrounding areas to come together to share insight, experiences, events and resources related to autism. We have an active online community of members on Facebook, host events and field trips in the community centered around autism, and advocate for the acceptance and accommodation for all people on the autism spectrum. We also regularly host summertime parent-led play group for autistic children and hold monthly ICAC meetings during school months. See our calendar for more information about upcoming gatherings and events. 

NEW – During school months, The Iowa City Autism group will meet every third Thursday at 9am at Zion Lutheran Church in Iowa City. Our focus will be on problem-solving, discussing resources, strategies, school issues, and allowing caregivers and autistic people to connect with each other through casual conversation. This group does not meet in July-August. Contact Dina Bishara at iowadina@yahoo.com for more information.
