This group is for adult Aspies (Asperger's Syndrome or, now, high-functioning autism) with a mild version of the syndrome. It is designed to give members a chance to socialise and make friends with other Aspies. Most of us will not have a formal diagnosis but may be aware that we have some of the traits of the syndrome.
The syndrome covers a wide range of severity and this group is aimed particularly at those of us who are functioning superficially normally ( I am a professional and have a long term partner) but who, because of our unique approach to socialising, find it difficult to make real friends or enjoy some social activities.
I would see our first meetings being in a coffee shop type settings with more ambitious activities once the character of the group develops.
Apart from being an opportunity to meet others in a friendly, comfortable setting it would also be a chance to share Aspie experiences and explore ways of making life among the neurotypicals a little easier.
Membership is open to everyone
