We will have topic on college with Asperger sydrome student and how
students are doing in college.
We are forming a group for Adults, ages 18 and up who have
Asperger's Syndrome. Other young people with high-functioning
autism, or PDD may also be comfortable in our group. The main
purpose of the group will be socializing. We plan to meet once a
month for a support-type group, where we will get to know one
another and talk about the challenges of our jobs or college
classes, learning to deal with co-workers, and finding friends when
school is over. We would also like to meet one other night each
month to go to a movie, out to dinner, bowling or any other
activities that the group members are interested in. We have
tentatively arranged to meet at Healthquest in Flemington. We have
reserved a room for late Sunday afternoons. We would meet for two
hours from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Parents would be welcome to meet with
one another at the same time. The group will have a facilitator,
someone who can help us with the tasks of running a meeting. If you
or someone you know would be interested in joining our group, please
contact Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello - hope the group has started off well - are there other "middle-adulthood" AS folks out there? (On this b-board, I mean :wink: ) I am in my mid-40's, recently diagnosed, still trying to get a handle on which problematic aspects of my life might be attributable to AS - and to find some effective approaches to learning some of those "unwritten rules" - surely there are positive aspects as well - would be interested in hearing from others in similar situations - thanks!
