Adults with autism shared perceptions about Towson University's inclusive social group model via a descriptive survey study with closed and open-ended questions. Data from 18 respondents reflect the positive impact of university student peers and adult participants with autism feeling welcome, safe, and accepted. They also identified social skills goals associated with attending. This model for supporting social participation of adults with autism has potential for replication in other settings.
