San Francisco Adult Asperger Self Help Meetup (AASHM) Pages

Basic Ground Rules for in-person meetings (the long way of saying please don’t be rude or disrupt the meeting):

  • All personal information shared is confidential, including the fact that someone attended.
  • Avoid insults and stereotypes referring to race, gender, sexuality, religion, politics, etc.
  • Focus on your life as an adult with AS rather than focusing on other people or topics.
  • No food or beverages other than water bottles with the cap on. (library rule)
  • Please keep your cell phone ringer off.



This group has a mailing list and message board that group members can use to communicate with each other. Standards of decorum for electronic posts:

  • Posts should be relevant and addressed to the group, not just random information or responses directed to one person.
  • When replying only to the sender of a mailing list message, it is necessary to cut and paste the sender's email address into the To field of your email window, or else your message intended for one person will go out to 100+ people on the list, which wastes people's time and tends to cause people to get annoyed at you if your message was not for them.
  • Avoid insults and stereotypes referring to race, gender, sexuality, religion, politics, etc.
  • Focus on your life as an adult with AS rather than focusing on other people or topics.
  • All personal information shared at a meeting is confidential, including the fact that someone attended.
  • Discussing confidential matters from meetings is not appropriate as most of the 100+ people on the mailing list were not at the meeting, but following up on concepts or ideas from meetings is welcome
  • Posts that criticize or tell other group members how to act are not appropriate; constructive criticism should be given by individual emails instead of on the list.



Members should be aware that they can control which types of messages they receive if they are receiving too much email. Go to meetup.com, log in to your account. Click Account, click on Membership and Communications, then click on Email Settings. You can choose:

  • Whether to be notified of message board posts
  • Whether to receive mailing list messages as they are sent, in a daily archive, or not at all
  • Whether to receive automated meeting reminders
