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.
