Online Adult Tuesday Morning Support Group Series
09/03/2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm, $80.00
This adult support group series is designed for adults who are on the autism spectrum. Through this support group series, adults can build an ongoing connection with a small community of other adults. AANE adult support group series also give adults an opportunity to voice their concerns and frustrations. It also lets them acknowledge hard-won and unexpected victories.
Moderator: The group will be moderated by Kelly Urban. Kelly Urban, is a therapist and LifeMAP coach, who also works in AANE’s Adult Services Department. Kelly previously worked at McLean Hospital, using DBT to teach young women emotion regulation tools and other life skills to move forward in their lives. Since 2014, Kelly has been providing information and referral services to adults, their families and professionals, to help navigate what an Asperger profile means for them or those they care about.
A strong internet connection and a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone are required for this group.
All meetings will be held online. We will meet weekly for 8 meetings on Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m-12:30 p.m EST.
Common topics of discussion are:
- Independent Living
- Daily Living Skills
