This group is built around peer-run support groups for adults who are on the autism spectrum or have learning disabilities with similar social effects (e.g. nonverbal LD, social-emotional LD or social communication disorder.)
The site currently features the monthly GRASP Chicago-Evanston Support Group and other social gatherings in Chicago and its suburbs.
Given that restrictions related to the Coronavirus have made in-person meetings impractical for the near-future, the group is transitioning to online meetings. Basic policies for these meetings are post in the group discussion section of this site.
Once you have joined this site, please read the "Basic Online Policies: GRASP Chicago-Evanston Support Group" post on the Chicago Asperger Adults & Friends Discussion Forum.
Chicago Asperger Adults & Friends welcomes relatives, professionals, and other friends of adults on the autism spectrum to join this site in hopes that we forge new connections between autism spectrum adults and other parts of the autism community.
Members are welcome to use this site’s message boards and other messaging services to connect with each other.
For those planning to attend the GRASP Chicago-Evanston Support Group, it is also requested that you subscribe to the GRASP Chicago-Evanston Chapter at https://www.GRASP.org
