Adults Hub: Online / Phone Social Night
Topic: 'Where and how to meet people'
Our Adults Group is for older members of the Aspergers autistic community and those with other similar neurodiverse profiles. 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.) This month we are meeting online via Zoom.
This session will be facilitated by the Group Leader, Colin. You can contact him via firstname.lastname@example.org. All AV volunteer group leaders share the lived experience of their group participants and welcome new attendees. All AV group leaders have a Working with Children Check.
Tonight's topic will be 'Where and how to meet people'. One of the big challenges for us on the spectrum, is meeting other people. Whether it is with a view to dating, making friends or just having a social outing, we may struggle to know where to meet people. Pubs and nightclubs may be too challenging to our senses and may not include the "right sorts" of people. On the night, we will discuss where we might go to meet people, and then consider how to approach them for a successful social engagement.
