Welcome to CASPAN, the Chicago Autism SPectrum Adult (and Teen) Network! Meet with local teens, young adults and adults affected by Asperger's, autism, PDD-NOS, and related autistic spectrum and pervasive developmental issues. Both formally and self-diagnosed people attend regularly. We have several different groups around the Chicago area. We currently list support groups that meet in Barrington, Palos Hills, Naperville, Palatine, and downtown Chicago. We additionally have groups just for Women on the Spectrum and the LBGTQ Community on the Spectrum. In addition to the monthly support groups, we have more casual social activities. Keeping the needs of people with Asperger's in mind, these social outings periodically meet at various locations. We have also attended and tabled at a number of autism conferences around the Midwest. We are always looking for suggestions for future activities, discussion topics, and new groups. If you are looking for information on the GRASP Chicago group in Evanston, please visit http://www.grasp.org/res_sg.htm . *A parent or guardian must register teen members under 18, per Meetup regulations. *Please check the ages for each group before RSVPing.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
