Welcome to our meetup created for adults 26 and older with Asperger's Syndrome. Our group was originally a part of The Austin Asperger's Support Group (which now focuses on parents and youngsters, as well as meetings for teens and young adults, see their Meetup page for details and contact info.)
Our group meets biweekly (alternate Saturdays, see calendar) and discusses topics that are important to them as adults Aspies. Our official meeting presentation and discussion goes from 2pm until 5pm. Our meeting room at CafeExpress on North Lamar is cozy and fairly quiet and accommodates up to about 16 comfortably. Meetings with more than 10 members can be a little tight for eating, so many of us come around 1:30 to eat together. There is often a group that visits for a while after the meeting on the patio.
We welcome interested adult Aspie visitors (RSVP optional).However because our meeting room offers limited seating, we encourage those younger than our (admittedly arbitrary) age range to look for more age appropriate groups. Our members are self-sufficient adults who generally see Asperger's as a mixed blessing that needs no fixing or accommodating; our discovery of Aspergers in adulthood was generally welcome relief from a lifetime of self doubt.
In order to continue with our success we encourage our members to be active with suggestions, feedback and concerns. Otherwise, we will not know what needs to be adjusted for you to enjoy the meetup.
If you are interested please complete the questionnaire and we will get back to you.
Thank you for your interest, we look forward to meeting you at one of our groups..
