Please note: This is a casual support group for the neurotypical partner of Aspies. We are not an Aspie group. If you are looking for an Aspie group, please contact GRASP (grasp.org). They run several Aspie groups in the city.
Our first Organizer Tania started this group because she was looking for support for partners and/or spouses of Aspies and found none. She found several services and groups for Aspies and parents of children with Autism Spectrum disorders, but none for adult partners. So she began this group hoping to meet others in the NYC/NJ area who face the same unique challenges of having a partner with Asperger Syndrome.
If you are in an AS/NT relationship please consider joining this group. Even if you are in a good place in your relationship, please come and be an inspiration for others. An AS/NT relationship is special and unique in it's challenges, but holds potential to be rewarding. The focus of this peer group will be on emotional and practical support as well as informational exchange. We can support each other to achieve the best in our relationships! :-)
We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming event!
**We presently meet in Manhattan and are currently seeking a member willing to host a regular meeting in a NJ location for our NJ residents.
