AANE Webinar: Building Meaningful Relationships – Friendship, 10/29/20, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM ET

October 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am, $10.00

DESCRIPTION: Connection and belonging are important to us all. For individuals with Autism/Asperger profiles, isolation can be an all too common experience. Navigating the complexities of relationships can present barriers to building and maintaining meaningful long-term friendships. How can we then break down these barriers and build true connections? Join this webinar and hear one adult’s experience cultivating and maintaining meaningful connections in his life. Learn what worked, what was challenging and the many lessons learned along the way.

WHEN: Thursday, October 29, 2020

TIME: 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM ET

WHERE: Online via Zoom

He is also a musician that has studied a variety of instruments over the last fourteen years and is highly involved with music production.
