This is Houston’s premier Meet Up group, that is, a way to connect with others whose lives have been touched by autism. Joe Lippeatt has maintained the group for years, though I think he has tried to pass the baton to others–a victim of his own success I guess. We’ve attended a few meet ups, but most of the action is in Katy or Tomball. Not much in Clear Lake, though I did volunteer to host one event at It’z Pizza in Pasadena one Friday night.
Once joining, anyone can suggest/host a meet up. The site makes it easy to do so. It also acts informally as a list for discussion about various topics, treatments, advice about schools and so forth.
