Young Adult/Adult Asperger Syndrome
High Functioning Autism Support
(the Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership),
in partnership with AHA/AS/PDD, offers a Young Adult/Adult
Asperger Syndrome/High-Functioning Autism Monthly Support
group meets monthly on Saturdays from 4:00pm - 6:00pm
at ACLD (directions below)
ACLD Lindner Center,
807 South Oyster Bay Rd., Bethpage, NY
meetings for young adults (18 years old and over) and
adults with Asperger's Syndrome/High Functioning Autism.
Parents are welcome to attend ( one or two meetings),
as are clinicians, other family members, friends, or
professionals. However, the format and subject material
are geared towards individuals with AS/HFA only.
Our mission is threefold:
- To stop individuals from feeling bad about themselves because of what they have
- To become a Community.
- To maximize our gains and minimize our losses. More specifically, that through education, we identify and develop our strengths while at the same time, reduce the potential damage that occurs when our ways clash with the neurotypical world.
goals are to address the various issues of social skills,
recreation, employment, future living situations, etc.
and to work towards creating effective programs in these
from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
