Friend meet-ups can be a safe way to build friendship skills. Opportunities currently exist in Yukon, Oklahoma City, Edmond, Tulsa and Muskogee.  These groups generally meet monthly throughout the school year. If you have an idea for a friend meet-up, please reach out to Beth DeGrace (beth.degrace@autismoklahoma.org) with your idea or check our website EVENTS page or local Facebook groups.

If you are interested in being involved in a social group, talk to your Connection Circle leader or reach out to us!
