The Clubhouse

The Clubhouse is a low-energy, low commitment space for Duke students who want to hang out and meet people, but are happier in smaller groups. Events are sensory-friendly and low-pressure, and entirely optional – stay as long as you’re comfortable. This is not a therapeutic group and no diagnosis is needed – it is a space to meet and hang out with other cool people with similar interests.

Events are held monthly.

More information found here.  Please contact kimberly.blackshear@duke.edu for details.

Autism in Love film screening

We are thrilled to announce a free screening of the film Autism in Love, open to Duke students, faculty and staff. Please join us!
