Autismerica is a student organization housed at the College of DuPage (COD) for both students and community members on the autism spectrum to better educate themselves about COD and socialize with one another in a safe and supportive environment. We had our first meeting in December, 2010. Parents are also provided a separate meeting opportunity. Meetings are generally held on the second Thursday evening of each month.
