Meet up with fellow Aspies who are coping with emotional issues uniquely related to Asperger's such as interaction with neurotypicals, feeling alien, loneliness/depression, overload, etc.
Our group is also about encouraging independence for people with Asperger's syndrome. For this reason we do not include caretakers/parents in the group meetings as this can prevent the person they are caring for as well as the other members from opening up.
This is a safe place to share your struggles, exchange ideas, and get that all important support and acceptance. Our discussions are confidential. What is said in the group stays in the group. We care about you and want to help! And...Free hugs!
To become a member you must have Asperger's and be 18 or over. Parents, friends and caretakers can join our sister group at
New members must be approved by the Organizer

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
