BIPOC Group Support


This group is a space for those who self-identify as part of the global majority (BIPOC) adults. The group's focus is to provide an opportunity to talk about the intersections of oppression that are unique to the BIPOC autist.

Some topics include:

  • Navigating and self-advocating in white-controlled spaces

  • Code-switching / masking

  • Task management for hair and body care

  • Identifying and working through internalized racism and ableism

  • Ancestral Self Care

  • Cultivating neurodivergent friendships

  • Building neurodivergent community

This group is a respite from white, neurotypical expectations. In this group, we learn and affirm cultural and ethnic differences to create a space for us.

Currently, this BIPOC group is for those individuals who are non-white passing. If you self-identify as BIPOC and are white-passing, please let us know, and we will keep your name on a growing waitlist.

This group is not a therapy group, it is a skill-building, psycho-educational support group.

This group will be led by Jess Judkins, M.A.: "I am black, queer, autistic, and educationally- privileged. I do my best to acknowledge my privileges, biases, and internalized oppression by engaging in my internal work. I welcome conversations concerning my privilege and how that may show up in our work together."

Queer Group Support

In this group, we come together to create a celebratory, inclusive, and affirming space that welcomes queer autistic and ADHD adults of all ages and identities.


The curriculum for this group includes topics that are unique to the experience of queer people today, as well as topics that are part of the lives of all neurodivergent adults:


  • Exploring our identities in relation to gender, sexuality, and culture

  • Addressing internalized homophobia and self image

  • Self-advocacy

  • Engaging in queer activism in ways that are sustainable and nourishing for neurodivergent people 

  • Building community

  • Nurturing friendships

  • Navigating dating and romance

  • Managing family relationships, with both supportive and challenging family members


We have a strong focus in this group on building community, learning from one another, and supporting each other as we explore what it looks like to be both queer and neurodivergent.

This group is run by Lee Bess, Ph.D.
