Adults Hub: Online / Phone Social Night

Topic: Sensory Sensitivities




This group is for our older Adult peer group attendees.  It is more suitable for those who are aged 35 years and over, although younger adults are welcome to join in. (Young adults may prefer to attend our Young Adults group meetings as well as or instead of this group.)


The Adults Group is currently meeting online via Zoom due to current COVID-19 restrictions in place in Melbourne, Victoria. We have included more information below about Zoom and how to access the meetings.


This month, we will be discussing an experience shared by many in the autistic community: sensory sensitivity. This is where we are much more sensitive to certain environmental stimuli than the average person. For some people it is sharp noises, or maybe low humming noises. For others it may be bright light, flashing lights, or particular colours. Other people may have difficulty with the texture of clothing, food, or being touched, even accidentally. At the meeting, we will be discussing sensory sensitivities: what people experience and how we get around the problems these sensitivities cause.


Feel free to drop in at any time through the 7.30pm to 9.30pm indicated timeslot.

The meeting will be facilitated by the Group Leader, Colin. You can contact him via asadults@aspergersvic.org.au.


Cost: FREE this month, courtesy of a COVID-19 grant from the Department of Health and Human Services. You need to register to access the Zoom link. You will receive a registration confirmation email containing the link and meeting details.
