Autistic Adult Social (Ages 18+) @ East Library Community Room

ppeastlibrary

The Autistic Adult Social Group is a group designed for adults on the autism spectrum. The group provides a safe, supportive environment for autistic adults to make friends and explore common interests with others on the spectrum. Participants are encouraged to bring light snacks and a game they would like to play with the group.

This group has a few general guidelines. As adult conversation occurs, attendees must be age 18+. Attendees must want to attend – we cannot accommodate individuals that do not want to interact. This group is also only for those on the spectrum – we have found over and over that it simply works best this way. If needed, the library makes a great “hover zone” for caregivers. We understand the apprehension some individuals on the spectrum feel about new environments, and will take every step to make somebody comfortable (including meeting beforehand, phone discussions, etc.).

When: meets the last (last, not fourth) Monday of every month from 7:00-9:00pm

 

Women on the Spectrum Social and Support Group (WOS3) (18+) @ East Library Community Room

This group is designed for women on the spectrum.  The group provides a safe, supportive environment where women on the autism spectrum can make friends, share similar life challenges, and find support. Participants are encouraged to bring light snacks and a game they would like to share.  This group will also enjoy crafts and meeting for other activities during the month (check our Facebook page for details or emails us at info@autismaspergerconnections.org).wos3

The Asperger’s Support Group is a group for family members, caregivers, and adults on the autism spectrum to discuss Asperger’s-related issues. On nights where the group dynamics warrant, the group splits into a “children-focused” and an “adult-focused” discussion.

When:  meets the third Thursday of every month from 7:00-9:00pm

Note:  The Rockrimmon Library can be a bit difficult to find.  The Rockrimmon Library is located in the Safeway Village Shopping Center at the intersection of  S. Rockrimmon Blvd. and Vindicator Drive.  You can enter the shopping center from either Rockrimmon Blvd. or Vindicator Drive.  Village Center Drive (the street address of the library) starts and ends in the shopping center parking lot.  The library is located at the far west end of the shopping center, to the south of Safeway.
