Self-Advocate Social Group

Join the Milestones Self-Advocate Social Group!

Created by self-advocates for self-advocates, the Milestones Self-Advocate Social Group is a community designed to build friendships, share common interests and explore topics important to individuals with disabilities.

Hosted on Discord, a popular online social platform, this group provides fun monthly activities such as:

  • Virtual video and board game nights, book clubs, craft tutorials, presentations and more
  • Structured conversations about areas of interest (e.g. music, video games, arts, sports) in dedicated chat channels 24/7
  • Special guest speaker events
  • Options for voice and text-based communication

As COVID-19 allows, this group is working to offer more in-person events to our members. Please note that those attending in-person events must provide proof of vaccination or wear a mask to ensure the safety of our group members.  

Who can join?
Self-advocates with a formal or self-diagnosis of autism or other disabilities. Ages 16+
