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 indoor support groups impractical for the near future, the group has transitioned to online support group meeting and in-person gatherings at local parks/forest preserves.
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
