Summer 2019 Bi-Weekly Online Support Group Series for Women Ages 19-35

June 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, $5.00










Bi-Weekly on Thursdays – Online Support Group Series for Young Women (19-35)

This adult support group series is designed for young women ages 19-35 who are on the autism spectrum. Through this support group series, young women can build an ongoing connection with a small community of other young women. 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 Debbie Curtiss. Debbie Curtiss, M.Ed., Ed.S., NCSP, Parent Support Specialist, is also the parent of a young adult daughter. With over almost 30 years of experience in private practice and as a school psychologist, she has conducted evaluations and therapy for children, developed IEPs, and provided parents and teachers with practical solutions and interventions for common issues experienced by children with Asperger profiles. Debbie also leads the in-person drop-in support group for young women at AANE and the online support group series for young women.

A strong internet connection and a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone are required for this group.

Meeting Dates:

All meetings will be held online. We will meet bi-weekly for 8 meetings on Thursdays from 6:30-8:00 p.m EST.
