ASD Peer Connections for Women & Trans Students

ASD Peer Connections for Women & Trans Students provides women and trans students with ASD an informal space to connect and discuss topics relevant to their disability and/or identity.

Facilitated by an Accessibility Advisor and Peer Facilitator, the group members meet biweekly to discuss topics relevant to their disability and/or identity.

Topics include:
Building a supportive group
Finding creative outlets
Creating an inclusive classroom/university 

If this is your first time joining, please complete the ASD Peer Connections for Women & Trans Student sign up form. Women and trans students who self-identify as having Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are eligible. No formal diagnosis is required.

Format: ASD Peer Connections will be offered simultaneously in-person and virtually via MS Teams. Students are encouraged to attend for the full hour. The session will be run by an Accessibility Advisor and Peer Facilitator. Students are welcome to take breaks during the session as needed.

Participation: Being on camera, using your mic, or participating in the chat are all optional when attending virtually. We welcome you to participate in a way that works for you. There will not be breakout rooms. Students are welcome to bring their own questions to the event. Participation in person is encouraged, though not required.

Materials: Participants are not required to bring materials.

Platform Access Information: If attending online, this event will be delivered using MS Teams. Please ensure your MS Teams access is up to date to make the most of this session. To learn about the accessibility features on MS Teams and how to use them, you can read more about the overview of accessibility features and watch the MS Teams video tutorials. If attending in person, this event will take place in the Accessibility Programming Space (455 Spadina Ave, suite 401).

Technology & Sound:  If attending online, this event will be taking place over the MS Teams, and will require a computer or device with this platform installed, with speakers or connection to a headset.

Using Microsoft Teams
Please note, Microsoft Teams is required to participate in this event. Here are instructions on how to download the application - it works better when you use the desktop version rather than the web version.

We will send you a link to join a Microsoft Teams Online Meeting for the start time of our Dialogue:
If you already have access to Microsoft Teams, then all you need to do is click the link in the meeting invite, and you will be connected for a video chat.  If you prefer, you can enable only audio. 

We recommend that you test this feature before your meeting to make sure everything works properly. 

The workshops/events hosted by Accessibility Services on CLNx are catered to students who self-identify as living with a disability. If you require any accommodations to fully participate in this event, please connect with in advance of the date. Please note that some accommodations may require at least 12 business days' advance notice.
