Professional Meet-up Group

The Professional Meet-up group is for adults with autism who are in the professional work-world.

This group will alternate between virtual and in-person group meetings. We aim to create a community and network of autistic adults and neurotypical peers who are experiencing similar life stages. Community outings may include visiting restaurants, hiking, dinner and movie, taking a class together, etc.

All members AND volunteers are expected to provide their own transportation and cover the cost of activities. The group is appropriate for college seniors and working professionals.

Mission Statement

The basic mission of the Emory Autism Center is to help Georgia's individuals, living with an autism spectrum disorder, reach their highest potential.


As an adult, we often take for granted the opportunities to simply choose meaningful activities where we can develop and build relationships and where we are able to learn skills to support adulting behaviors. The goal of the Emory Autism Center's adult program, myLIFE, is to create such opportunities for adults with an autism spectrum disorder.

Engaging activities provide group members with the chance to share interests and practice key social skills involved in successful interactions, to learn important life skills, and to create memories that will last a lifetime.
