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.). This group focuses on the mutual life journey of adult Aspies
Our group meets biweekly (alternate Saturdays, see calendar) and discusses topics that are important to them as adult Aspies. Our official meeting presentation and discussion goes from 2pm until 4pm. 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 almost always the option for an adjective group to coalesce for a while after the meeting on the patio. Please patronize our host, Cafe Express, that continues to let us use the room without fee.
Members may suggest Meetup topics and outings without moderation
We welcome interested adult Aspie visitors (RSVP encouraged ).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 and isolation.
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.
Thank you for your interest, we look forward to meeting you at one of our groups..
