    What would you tell your 15 year old self?


    Come along and join us to share our discussion about what you would tell your 15 year old self looking back. This is our first gathering with like-minded Aspergers adults, to celebrate the start of 2019! We also plan to discuss some of our plans for this year. 

    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 may still attend if they wish to.  (Young adults may prefer to attend the other younger adult meetings: see our event list).

    This Group is for Aspergers Victoria members and has been meeting up on the 3rd Thursday of each month across each year for some time. If you are not a member you can come for one session and pay more - or join here and enjoy our member price as well as other member value and benefits as part of our community. 

    This page is for booking places only.

    Please NoteIf you have any further queries about the booking procedures or have missed the booking deadline, please email admin@aspergersvic.org.au

    Southern Group Parents & Carers Peer Group


    This group is a place for Parents, Grandparents and Carers (of a person with Aspergers or High Functioning Autism) to meet, share their experiences and support each other. 

    We have a range of parents who attend, who have children of varying ages from toddlers through to young adults. The group is structured/facilitated to allow opportunity for all attendees to talk if they wish. 

    Discussion Topic:

    We will go around the table as usual and encourage new people to tell us their story,

    Attendance varies from month to month, and it's great to talk to others who have been through similar challenges. 

    The building lies on North Rd, between Wheatley Rd & Queen St. Parking is available in these streets. Please do not park in the driveway as it is for the office workers only. Come straight in, up the stairs & you'll find us.
