Watertown, MA – Weekly Support Group Series for Young Men (18-30)

May 7 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm, $80.00










Weekly on Tuesdays – Support Group Series for Young Men (18-30)

This adult support group series is designed for young men ages 18-30 who are on the autism spectrum. Through this support group series, young men can build an ongoing connection with a small community of other young men. 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 Nick Gallop. Nick Gallop, Adult Services Coordinator, specializes in topics such as adulthood on the autism spectrum, feelings of isolation and depression, independent living, work and college-related issues, among other feelings associated with AS. Nick works hands-on with adults with AS and provides them with information and referrals. He facilitates support groups, interest series, and events for adults. He also helps adults understand what it means to have an Asperger Profile. Contact: nick.gallop@aane.org, 617-393-3824 x72
