Open Social Groups in Massachusetts

  • Pizza & Game NightsPrior to the Covid-19 pandemic, we offered many P&G nights throughout MA.  We’ve now converted many of these P&G nights into virtual game nights that are open to adults who live within commuting distance of the original P&G night location.  When it is safe to do so, we will resume in-person P&G night activities.
  • Local Virtual/Online Game Nights are a replacement for in-person P&G Nights, and are intended for adults who live with commuting distance of the indicated city/town.  Virtual game nights are free, but pre-registration is required.  We offer Local Virtual Game Nights for adults within commuting distance of:
    • Amherst, MA + Holyoke, MA + Springfield, MA
    • Danvers, MA (North Shore)
    • Fitchburg, MA
    • Framingham, MA
    • Westwood, MA (South Area)
    • Worcester, MA
  • AANE Meetup Group for Adults in the Metro-Boston Area - AANE has started a Meetup group for adults with an Asperger/autism profile to get together socially approximately once a month.  Each activity will be led by an AANE host and will be for post-high school adults to connect with other community members.  Examples of Meetup events are talk/performance at a library or bookstore, a comedy show, or an evening at a board game cafe.  Activities are appropriate for individuals who are able to attend independently. In-person meetups are on hold until Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. Virtual Meetup Events are being offered.
  • Women’s Social Events in the Greater Boston Area -The Boston Evening Clinic grant provides funding for a monthly women’s social event, open to women of any age on the spectrum.   These events are on hold until Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. Contact Stephanie Birkdale (stephanie.birkdale@aane.org)  for more details.
