Neurodiverse Peer Support Group
Sep 1 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join us on September 1st from 5-6 pm for the Neurodiverse Peer Support Group!

Join accessABILITY, an Indianapolis based non-profit welcoming individuals around the country, as we host the Neurodiverse Peer Support Group, a peer-led, peer-supported safe space for learning and growing together.

Neurodiversity is the infinite variations and diversity of the human mind. These differences are normal, yet the neurotypical society we live in puts up barriers. Each month we cover a specific topic where we share resources, insight, and personal stories to learn and grow together as advocates. Our peers include those with ADHD, Autism, Tourette’s, Dyslexia, Bipolar, TBI, Anxiety, Depression, and more.

This group is for peers who identify as having a neurodiversity. In order to keep this support group a safe space, we kindly ask those who do not identify as having a neurodiversity to not join.

We meet the first Thursday of every month from 5-6 PM EST. Email posika@abilityindiana.org for more information or to get connected.

Dis-Queer: A Disability LGBTQIA+ Support Group
Sep 6 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join accessABILITY, an Indianapolis based non-profit welcoming individuals around the country, as we host Dis-Queer, a peer-led, peer-supported safe space for LGBTQIA+ people with disabilities to connect and learn together.

LGBTQIA+ individuals with disabilities often report feeling isolated from both the LGBTQIA+ and disability communities, as well as a lack of education on issues such as relationships and sexual health that fits their needs. Each month we’ll cover a specific topic, where we’ll share resources, insight and personal stories to learn and grow together as advocates. Topics will be based on the interests and concerns of group members.

This group is for peers who: 1) Identify as having a disability, and 2) Identify as being part of the LGBTQIA+ community or are currently questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity. In order to keep this group a safe space, we ask that those who do not identify with these two things not attend.

We meet the first Tuesday of every month from 6:30-7:30 PM EST. Email scampscomms@gmail.com for more information or to get connected.

Introduction to Ableism & Allyship: Disability Education Workshop
Sep 13 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join the conversation about the impact of ableism on the disability community and learn how shifting our perspective allows us to be allies.

In celebration of 32 years of the ADA, accessABILITY is hosting a Disability Education Workshop to introduce our neighbors to introductory concepts within the disability community with the goal of exploring bias and creating allies. This virtual, two-hour session explores how history and mistreatment of the disability community has shaped our social understanding of individuals with disabilities and provides alternative solutions to shift perspectives and create stronger allies.

Together, we will build allyship through exploring language, interactions, societal frameworks of understanding disability, confronting our bias, and learning more about ourselves through disability-based framework.

I. 1:00 – 1:15 Overview
Introduction to accessABILITY, presenters, and disclaimers

II. 1:15 – 2:00 Combating Ableism
Disability history & statistics, models of disability, spoon theory, different disabilities, barriers to access

III. 2:05 – 2:50 Fostering Allyship
Language, interactions, enabling vs. empowering, accessibility Interactive activity: Practice scenarios

IV. 2:50 – 3:00 Closing
Reflection on training and resources for further learning

Reserve your spot here.

If you have any accessibility needs, please email posika@abilityindiana.org beforehand.

Parenting Disabilities
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join accessABILITY, an Indianapolis based non-profit welcoming individuals around the country, as we host the Parenting Disability Peer Support Group, a peer-led, peer-supported safe space for learning and growing together in our journeys of parenting children with disabilities.

Parenting a child with a disability is a unique experience. While there are so many resources out there, it can often be isolating being the ‘only one’ in a group of your peers. Each month we will come together to ask questions, support each other, cover specific topics and bring in guest speakers. We will learn, grow, and support each other on this parenting journey!

This group is for parents who identify as parenting a child with any disability. In order to keep this support group a safe space, we kindly ask those who do not identify as a parent with a child with a disability to not join.

Register for free here.

We meet the third Wednesday of every month from 7:30-8:30 PM EST. Email jminor@abilityindiana.org for more information or to get connected.
