What we're about

Teens and young adults with Aspergers will be able to get together and hopefully form some great friendships in an accepting environment. So, if you or your young adult are looking to make friends you've come to the right place. Everyone here is after the the same thing. If this group sounds like it could benefit you and your child, please consider joining. Parents are welcome to all of our Meetups. This has turned into a great support group for parents as well. Members are welcome to make suggestions about gatherings that they will enjoy.

!!! MUST READ!!!! - IMPORTANT POLICY NOTES:

Our group is dedicated to helping young adults dealing with various emotional, intellectual and social differences. Each one is different and each has different levels of ability dealing with the various situations they may find themselves in while participating in our group activities. Please read the policies below regarding responsibility for you or your young adult. In a nut shell

1. This group is specifically geared towards High Functioning Autistics ages 18-25 who are capable of unsupervised activities and interaction with the rest of the group. Those who may need more supervision or assistance may supply it via a parent or guardian or possibly find a group better suited to the needs of the young adult.

2. Those under the age of 18 MUST have a parent or guardian present at all events. Do not ask if it's ok to leave them during an event, it is not.

3. Those over 18 will be treated as responsible, legal adults. No one knows them better than you. Do not ask to leave if they may have difficulty on their own. It is not fair to them, the other parents, members of the group or to the organizers. If they require assistance it must be supplied from outside this group.

4. While we strive to create a safe and friendly environment, no one will be watching your young adult. No one will be responsible for them other than you. If they need assistance it must come from you. Most of our members are extremely kind parents and young adults. However, they will typically be dealing with their own concerns during an event. We are trying to create an environment where the young people can be independent and work out difficulties on their own.

5. All attendees assume responsibility for themselves and any guests they bring.

6. Organizers and hosts cannot and do not assume any responsibility for anyone other than themselves and possibly the young adult they bring to an event.

7. Organizers and hosts are not professionals, doctors. We simply dedicate some of our free time to help facilitate a social environment for the members.

8. The organizers and hosts receive no compensation for the time and work they put into this group, please respect their efforts by making sure to follow group guidelines.
