Support groups offer post high school adults with Asperger/autism profiles the opportunity to connect and relate to peers in a series of face-to-face groups, drop-in groups, or in a series of online groups. Adult support groups are facilitated peer support, not intended to be therapy.
All groups are limited in size, are facilitated by an AANE staff member, and require pre-registration. Each session lasts 90 minutes.
Learn more about the guidelines and code of conduct for adult groups and events on the Adult Support Group and Event FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page.
Support group series are designed to create a tight-knit community of support that members can tap into even after all group meetings in the series end. Members of the group must register in advance. Groups meet each week or every other week for 6 to 8 weeks. Registration is typically limited to 12 members. AANE holds in-person and online support group series.
