xMinds Monthly Online Discussion Groups

Our online discussion groups provide a great opportunity to connect with other MoCo parents and guardians of autistic students. Each discussion group is geared toward a specific segment of our community, allowing families to chat about shared interests and concerns. Discussion groups offer a wonderful way to find resources, make connections, and share your successes.

There's no cost to participate — all xMinds events are free! Discussion groups operate on a drop-in basis, so join us whenever you have a chance! New participants are always welcome. See our lineup below, and register where indicated to receive a Zoom link.
