Social and Support Networks for Adults on the Autism Spectrum


The Iowa City Autism Community Social Group

The Iowa City Autism Community hosts a social group that meets every second and last Sunday of each month. This group is open to adults who have autism, ADHD, SPD or who are otherwise neurodivergent. No sign up is necessary and refreshments will be provided. Please check the calendar for meeting times and dates, as they may be subject to change. As a complimentary group for those who may prefer connecting online, we also have a Facebook group called “Neurodivergent Iowa City” that is open only to adults on the autism spectrum or who are otherwise neurodivergent. Members may be added via email or by messaging admin in our regular Iowa City Autism Community Facebook group.


The Iowa City Autism Community Caregiver Group

Parents who are on the autism spectrum are welcome to attend our monthly caregiver meetings every third Friday of the month at Zion Lutheran Church in Iowa City at 310 N. Johnson St, lower level in the “Gathering Room”. Parking is located behind the church. No sign up is necessary. While ICAC is not able to provide childcare, children are more than welcome to attend. Our focus is on problem solving, understanding our autistic children, navigating school issues and meeting for informal conversation. Contact Dina Bishara at for more information.
