Teens Hub: Online Peer Meeting
Teens on Discord, Parents on Zoom
August Group Meeting Update: Now online via Zoom
Our Teens group is for Aspergers, autistic and other similar neurodiverse profile teens to meet and hang out to play games or chat, while their parents/carers meet in another room to create social connection, chat about their experiences, share ideas and advice, and support each other.
Change to Zoom
Due to the current COVIDSafe restrictions in place in the leadup to this event, the Group Leaders and the AV team have had to move the planned in-person meeting for this group to an online meeting via Discord and Zoom. This will take place at the same time as the planned in-person meeting. We understand that many within our community are very keen to return to in-person meetings, and we'll do our best to make this happen as soon as DHHS COVID restrictions and planning time allow this.
We have included more information below about Zoom and how to access the meeting. You are welcome to have your video and microphone on or off if you prefer, and you can also participate in the meeting via Zoom's text-based chat function.
Please note that each Teen must be supervised by a parent or carer when accessing the Discord server, and you will be asked to confirm that you and your Teen both agree to the Teens Discord Code of Conduct in order to register for the meeting.
When you register, please register using the name of the parent or carer, and please add the name of your teen as part of the registration questions.
The Teens Team:
Callan T, Callan B, Jack D, Jack J, Sunny - Volunteer Mentors
Susan and Annalisa - Parent Group Leaders
Do I need to register?
All attendees to AV's online and in-person groups and events must register before attending. For Zoom meetings, you need to register to access the Zoom details. For in-person meetings, registration is required due to DHHS COVID contact tracing and venue capacity limits.
Cost: $5 for AV members, $10 for non-members.
Become an AV member today to access discounted tickets for groups and events, other members-only programs, and to support all the wonderful work our volunteers and staff team do for our community.
If you are attending an AV group for the first time, you are welcome to register for free using our first-time attendee ticket. Please email email@example.com to access this.
If cost is a barrier, please contact Carla: firstname.lastname@example.org
What is Zoom?
Zoom is a free web-based video conferencing program. You can download it free onto your computer or phone/tablet, or you can dial in and participate via your landline or smart phone. Download the AV Zoom Guide (pdf).
What is Discord?
Discord is a free voice, video and text chat app for teens and adults aged 13 and over. Teens can access Discord via their computer or smart phone. Using Discord, they can join servers they have been invited to, create private servers with their friends, or message each other individually or in group chats. We suggest reading the Parents' Guide to Discord Blog before joining for the first time.
Is it safe for our teens to use?
Yes. Aspergers Victoria have created a dedicated, secure server for our Teens group. Only registered participants can access the AV Teens Discord server, and the link changes monthly for security. Our moderators have the list of registered teens and will only allow them to be online during the meeting.
