What we're about
Welcome! This group was created for Adults with Asperger's Syndrome in Austin, TX. 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. Our group focuses on the mutual life journey of adult Aspies.
Our group currently meets weekly on Saturdays and discusses topics that are important to us as adult Aspies. We are meetings only virtually for now due to COVID. Meeting links are available in the event details. Our official meeting presentation and discussion typically lasts from 2pm until 4pm, and there may be continued socializing afterward.
Members may suggest meeting topics and outings without moderation.
We also have a Discord server (Invite link: https://discord.gg/j9esGFe ), a Groups.io message board (URL: https://groups.io/g/Austin-Adult-Aspies ), and an unofficial website (URL: https://AustinAdultAspies.org ).
We welcome interested adult Aspie visitors (RSVP encouraged, not required). However, because our discussions can delve deeply into adult topics, we encourage pre-adult Aspies to look for life stage appropriate groups (e.g. The Austin Asperger's Support Group ).
Our members are adults who generally see Asperger's as a mixed blessing that is a condition that does not requiring "fixing". We all have varying support needs. For those of us who discover Asperger's in adulthood, it 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 meetings!
