AANE Support Group

For several years I have been participating in a support group with other Adults on the autism spectrum though a organization called AANE. A closed support group has the same group members (up to 12) for a set number of sessions (8). Closed support groups are ideal for adults who are looking for deeper connections and more extensive peer support from group members. For the best support group experience, closed group members should plan on attending all 8 meetings in the series. This group offers a safe environment where adults on the spectrum can talk with like-minded people, share issues and concerns, and celebrate successes. Common topics include: disclosure, self-advocacy, and relationships.  It has being a learning experience to learn from others that face similar challenges as I do.   – Greg
