We are a support group for adults 18 and older professionally or self- diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. (So far, most of us are 50 and older and recently diagnosed.) We seek understanding of the nature of our difficulties and seek and offer strategies for making our lives richer and more functional. If you think you may be an Aspie and want to learn more about the Syndrome, you are welcome to join us. We will make exceptions to the age restriction on a case-by-case basis. There is no charge to attend, but donations to cover minimal costs are accepted. On the 5th Thursdays of a month (5 times a year) we invite spouses, relatives and friends to join us. Check with us for exceptions to this during this holiday season.
