Connect with Others in Our Community

Autism-Friendly Activities

Throughout the year, The Iowa City Autism Community volunteers organize several activities for individuals on the spectrum and their families. Thanks to generous community donations, events are often free or at reduced price. We have worked with several local establishments to host sensory friendly browsing hours at our local libraries, sponsored sensory friendly movie screenings, bowling events, trampoline jumps, painting sessions, workshops, field trips, and more.

Iowa City Autism Community Meetings

We hold monthly ICAC meetings in order to plan for future group activities, discuss current local advocacy opportunities and to create opportunities for those in the autism community to meet and connect. Individuals on the autism spectrum, caregivers and community members are all welcome to attend and contribute.

Our meetings are usually held the third Thursday of the month at one of our local libraries. Please look at our calendar here to see when/where we are meeting next. For questions, please contact Jessie Witherell at
