Calgary Asperger's Syndrome / Autism Spectrum Meetup Group Pages

Welcome to the Calgary Asperger's Syndrome / Autism Spectrum Meetup Group!

The purpose of this group is to provide a positive environment for folks on the Spectrum, their friends and families to share ideas, support and experiences...or just enjoy food, drink, fun and friends. Whatever works!

Some possible topics of dicussion could include:

* Advocacy for children and for adults - How can we make life easier for everyone involved?

* The need for more support, services and acceptance for adults on the spectrum

* Day to day living - Got any tips to share?

* Dealing with misinformation - There is a lot of it out there...how do you handle it?

* Our interests - What is your current perseveration?

* Our talents - Let's celebrate the things we can do really well

* Relationships - dating, marriage, friendhships, erc.

* Careers and school - Finding jobs, surviving school, etc - ideas, experiences, etc.?

* Who says we're not creative??? - Share stories, art, etc.

* Irksome experiences - What irks you?

* Our sense of humour - Express that quirky sense of humour!

As a person on the spectrum, I hope that this meetup will grow to be a positive oasis in a world where AS is often seen as a disease, an epidemic, a travesty and a curse. It does not need to be so.

It's the way we are, why not learn to appreciate our strengths and share ways to cope with our challenges?

If any of these ideas interest you, why not join us at the next Meetup? We look forward to meeting you!
