AANE offers three types of supports for post high scho0l adults with Asperger / autism profiles:
- Community Connection Sessions - help relieve isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, and they also give you a way to try us out to see if you like us (Free)
- Ongoing/Drop-In Support Groups - let you become a part of a long-term support group with evolving membership (Free)
- Support Group Series - give you the opportunity to engage with the same group of peers in a series of meetings so you can delve into issues more deeply (Pay what you can afford)
Adult support groups are facilitated peer support, not intended to be therapy.
All groups are currently offered online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 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 for Adults
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.
