Meetup.Com offers easy access to Aspergers support groups in your area.
Meet with local people affected by Asperger’s Disorder (Asperger Syndrome) for support and discussion.
When you go to Asperger Meetups, you’ll see a search menu on the top right hand side of the page.
What if there is no Asperger support group near you?
Create a meetup group of your own! Here’s the link. You may need to pay some ‘organizer’s fees’ to get started. However, once you get organized, the group members can each contribute dues so that you’re not footing the bill. Reach out to other people and families in your community through your local newspaper. It’s a cheap way to get the word out on a mass scale to your community.
I’ve enjoyed the daily discussions that the moderator presents.
Here are some recent topics that have been discussed:
”How do you tell your aspie that they are an aspie?”
How do you cope when your child switches from calm to angry in an instant? How do you cope with this and what do you think causes it? Any of you guys on the spectrum, please feel free to let us know how such a swing in mood so quickly makes you feel.
For Adults with Asperger…..How did you deal with your diagnosis? Do you have people around you who understand you? How is life for you generally? Thank you so much for sharing your stories/experiences with us.
