I wanted to share with you what some of our members are saying about our group:
“This site is a God send. NT spouses
reaching out to kindred spirits for understanding and support. AS is
difficult to diagnosis and only those of us who live with it truly
understand how emotionally devastating it can be. Thank you Kathy for
starting this Meetup group.”
“Every non Asperger spouse or family
member would find valuable support in sharing their real life
experiences living with a spouse or family member with AS.“
“Genuine support group, extremely helpful to understanding ASD.”
For those of you who do not live in the Portland/Vancouver area, there is new feature on our Meetup site just for you. I
have created message board space for members to post on the same
subject we’re addressing in our face-to-face Meetups. I recognize that
this is not the same, but I hope that this will help you to connect with
us on the topic at hand.
I also wanted to mention that you can
email other members via the Meetup site. If you want to connect
personally with any of our members feel free to do so. It is all
anonymous, so no personal information is given out.
On January 8, 2011 at 1:00 pm, the Beaverton Group will be meeting to discuss “What did the holidays look like in your household? How did you take care of yourself?”
On January 15, 2011 at 1:00 pm, the Portland Group will be discussing, “Are you invisible? How do you cope with Aspies?”
We hope that you will be able to attend or share your thoughts on our message board. I look forward to hearing from you.
