[Image description: The graphic shows the rainbow silhouette of a person's head in-profile on a white background. Inside the person's head is a rainbow and a variety of details like gears, thought bubbles, and planets. To the right of the head is an orange infinity symbol. The text at the top of the graphic reads, "An LGBTQ+ Neurodivergent Community Group" and "3rd Tuesdays 6:00-7:30pm. The Bradbury-Sullivan Center logo is in the middle of the graphic alongside the building address "522 West Maple Street, Allentown, PA 18101."]
This group is meeting virtually every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Eastern. To participate, please email [email protected]. Live closed captioning is available during the meetings.
Welcome to Prism! Named for all the rainbows a prism can make when held up to the light, Prism is a group for neurodivergent LGBTQ+ people to gather, build community, and share support. We celebrate neurodiversity and embrace our individual unique perspectives.
"Neurodiversity is not a word about autism alone. It is a word that embraces all neurological uniqueness, all rhythms of neurodevelopment and all the forms by which humans can express themselves and contribute to their world."
We embrace all neurodivergent people – whether you’re formally diagnosed or not. We are committed to making you feel welcome. Please reach out to [email protected] if you have anything we can help with to make the group more comfortable and accessible for you. You are welcome to schedule a one-on-one phone call, Zoom, or in-person meeting with Robin if that would help you feel more comfortable attending or just send them an email.
Expectations for the first meeting on 2/15
- Introductions (name/pronouns) and a short (optional) ice breaker question
- Brainstorm session for ideas for group activities
- To participate in the "brainstorm" people can type ideas in the chat or say them aloud and the facilitator will take notes to write down ideas
- We want to do this so we can hear what activities people are interested in doing so the group can be what people are looking for in a group
- If you prefer or do not speak aloud, there is never a requirement to do so. You can type in the chat and/or share images in the chat if you prefer to engage with group that way
- If you do not want to put your camera on, you never have to, and facilitators will never ask you to
Some activities we're considering for future meetings
- Movie or TV watch party
- Parallel play night
- Online games
- Show and tell
- Craft night
