Autistic Adult Social (Ages 18+)
January 12, 2016
The Autistic Adult Social Group is a group designed for adults on the autism spectrum. The group provides a safe, supportive environment for autistic adults to make friends and explore common interests with others on the spectrum. Participants are encouraged to bring light snacks and a game they would like to play with the group.
This group has a few general guidelines. As adult conversation occurs, attendees must be age 18+. Attendees must want to attend – we cannot accommodate individuals that do not want to interact. This group is also only for those on the spectrum – we have found over and over that it simply works best this way. If needed, the library makes a great “hover zone” for caregivers. We understand the apprehension some individuals on the spectrum feel about new environments, and will take every step to make somebody comfortable (including meeting beforehand, phone discussions, etc.).
