So many people with Asperger’s or High-Functioning Autism are brilliant, creative people. But because of problems understanding social cues, they often lack friends and are extremely lonely. ASAP helps bridge that gap for them.
At the core of our success is our philosophy: Find comfortable, non-clinical, non-school spaces where people on the high-end of the Autism Spectrum can meet regularly. Run the group as a club where people are friends the moment they walk in the door. Offer light facilitation and social advice where necessary. Learn about each person’s interests and issues. Introduce them to like-minded people, engage in conversation and offer board and card games for entertainment.
Welcome to ASAP: Asperger’s Support for Adolescents Plus! We’re a social support group for teens and young adults with Asperger’s or High-Functioning Autism, Take the Aspergers Test. Right now we’re located on the Ventura Coast, but in the future, we hope to establish more ASAP branches.
Our monthly get-togethers are held at the Proverbs Coffee House, 71 Loma Dr, Camarillo, CA. Meetings usually start between 7PM – 7:30PM on the LAST Friday of the month, unless there is change due to holiday schedules.
Please drop by for coffee, board & card games or to just hang out. Sometimes we have a scheduled activity such as a movie or bingo night. Next meeting: Friday, August 27, 2010.
We also get together outside the monthly “meetings” for movies, mini golf & more!
