Our peer community Gatherings: 

If you, a partner or a family member is Aspergers, then our peer gatherings may suit your needs. Meet others, share stories, do activites together or listen to the occasional speaker in a friendly and inclusive community environment. Aspergers Victoria volunteers with lived experience run all meetings and welcome new attendees. Please let them know if you are new.

Peer groups are often the first port of call for our new members - a place where you can meet others, listen, learn and share stories. A place to just be yourself with accepting peers who just 'get' you. For our under 18 Teens group parents must remain present at the venue but are in a separate area to build Teen independence further.

Our meetings are for those who are fully independent - that means no carers are present in our Aspergers peer group meetings.  

Our Peer MEETINGS aim to empower attendees through discovering:

COMMUNITY Our groups create a sense of belonging to a community with like-minded, supportive peers with lived experience

RESILIENCE through ‘Growth Mindset’ and ‘Self-Regulation’ learning

CONFIDENCE through a focus on appreciation of strengths, special interests and abilities

SELF-DETERMINATION and independence through mentoring and learning

FRIENDSHIP and social experience through regular peer gatherings. Reduce isolation, perceived stigma plus builds friendship and trust through regular contact with the group

KNOWLEDGE shared in the group about how to extend or enjoy strengths, and ways to manage challenges 

Ultimately our gatherings aim to support self-esteem and, confidence and self-empowerment, to determine your own life independently, including areas of physical and mental health, relationships, employment, finance, housing, special interests and self-reliance. It could be regarded as a social networking program for Aspergers - without therapy.

Referrals keep coming to the group from local health services, schools, youth services and by word of mouth and are now exceeding our capacity to accommodate them in a volunteer-managed format.

*Please note these group gatherings are for Aspergers Victoria members only, however you are very welcome to attend a meeting before joining our community. Join online today! and then receive the other benefits of being part of our association.

Our Meeting Schedule

Due to COVID-19 requirements, our groups meetings have moved online and are using the online conferencing platform Zoom, and Discord for our Teens Group. 

Aspergers Victoria Group Values and Approach:

  • A Positive Strengths Mindset: We see possibilities, strengths and talents, not problems or deficits
  • A Growth Mindset: We pursue goals through continual learning from each other equally and share that knowledge; we don’t judge ourselves or others
  • Empowerment: We listen, support and encourage others to grow
  • Empathy: We try to understand another’s situation and help, if asked
  • Trust: We value the privacy and confidentiality of others in and outside of the group
  • Respect: We acknowledge the wishes and rights of others and believe we are responsible for our own behaviour

We call this the AV Groups Way. We expect attendees to abide by this in our events, activities and meetings. Our Peer Volunteers are NOT counsellors or therapists and cannot provide support for mental health issues.  

FOR Our MEETING bookings go to the bottom of this page or to our Events webpage.

For any questions relating to our meet-ups, or general group enquiries, contact us at Groups.

Please note:

- Any promotion of members’ ventures and other (non AV) items of interest are only to be conducted via the Groups Coordinator. If you wish to make announcements or distribute materials or commercial activities at our meetings, please email your request to the Groups Coordinator admin@aspergersvic.org.au. We usually prefer income earning ventures to become a professional member and get the publicity benefits beyond the group with that but are willing to assess the Group benefits and support small business. 

- AV has become aware of groups using the AV logo or name to promote their services or groups without AV approval. AV cannot provide any assurance of the quality of any group not coordinated by AV and not listed in the links below. They will not be covered by our insurance, nor have our Peer Leader training or necessarily deliver quality support to AV standards.

PLEASE NOTE: Our AV Groups do NOT provide professional advice, therapy, medical advice, counselling, crisis management or case management. They provide essential peer support via our volunteers and speakers. You can find professional support that is peer-recommended through our professionals directory  and through a number of organisations that do offer CRISIS support. Our Meeting leaders are NOT qualified to provide crisis support in anyway and cannot act in the role of carer. Attendees that need a carer present may need to re-assess suitability before attending. 

Teens Group

Join our Teens Group, for secondary students aged 12 to 18 years with Aspergers, autism, or other similar neurodiverse profiles.  Meet like-minded peers in a relaxed environment; share strengths, passions or interests over board games, or chat with our young adult leaders.  Parents and carers meet in an adjoining area to share stories or listen to a guest speaker about current teen issues. 

Meetings are held on the 1st Friday of the month in the south-eastern suburbs, February to November except public holidays.  Aspergers Victoria volunteers with lived experience run all meetings and will welcome new families. All group leaders have a Working With Children Check.

We also have an extension of the teens group called "Social Butterflies". This is a space for girls to meet other like-minded girls and non-binary teens and enjoy some fun activities and refreshments together. This group is currently on hiatus, however there are plans to resume this group in the near future, and we will share the details when they are confirmed.

Contact the Teens Group co-ordinator if you have any questions, or register for a session.

Please Note: A parent MUST accompany all children attending a Teens or Social Butterfly group, and the responsibility for supervision and any activity costs remains with the parents.

    AspieLand Moderated Minecraft

    Term 4 2021, Group 2


    Wow! Our Term 4 AspieLand Moderated Minecraft program sold out for the first time, which is fantastic, and we're so grateful for the support and interest from our AV member community! Even more importantly, we've had such a strong response from our Minecraft players and so many requests for more spaces that we've opened a second group, running on Tuesdays and Thursdays!


    About AspieLand

    AspieLand has been developed and co-designed with our Aspie teens, and Aspergers Victoria families and in term 4 we're excited to welcome new and existing players back to the server! Our Minecraft Moderators are older teens from our Aspergers community we employ as peers to help guide and support participants to build, remind what behaviour is appropriate and most importantly, have fun! Made possible by the ongoing support of the Department of Education and Training, this term will have a huge 8 weeks of Minecraft including 15 two-hour sessions - that's 30 hours of Minecraft building time!


    Available Sessions

    Group 2 of our Term 4 program will run on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in Term 4, starting on Tuesday 12 October. The last session is Thursday 2 December. (No session on Tuesday 2 November due to the Melbourne Cup Day public holiday.)


    Cost

    Our Term 4 AspieLand program is $247 for 15 x two-hour moderated sessions. That's just $8.25 per hour!

    If cost is a barrier, please talk to Carla - gm@aspergersvic.org.au


    Who can attend?

    • Children and teens aged 10-17 years
    • Beginners, intermediate and advanced players
    • Players who hold a current AV membership.
      If you are not yet an AV member, sign up today to access this program and so much more, including our Minecraft September Holiday Program, our members-only D&D program, Teens Work Know How Program, and member discounts for all of our groups and events!


    I have questions about AspieLand - who can I ask?

    We've noticed that many families have similar questions about AspieLand, so we’ve put together two documents to help players and their families find answers quickly.

    • Our AspieLand Moderated Minecraft - FAQ includes answers to the most common questions we've received about the AspieLand programs, including what AspieLand is, the server and worlds, the registration process, contacting other players, NDIS, and others.
      This also includes information about part-registrations, such as attending for one of the two session days, or registering after the start date. We encourage you to read through this before registering, as we're finding this covers the most common questions.
    • We also have our AspieLand Moderated Minecraft - Tech Support Guide, created by our moderators and admin team, which covers the steps for new players to connect for the first time, as well as suggestions for returning players to resolve potential tech issues.
    • We also encourage you and your player to read through the AspieLand Rules to get an idea of what builds and behaviour are appropriate for AspieLand to make sure everyone has a really enjoyable time on the server. This also gives your player some tips on how to contact moderators within the game if they need help or if they're new.


    Who can I contact for help if I can't find the answer to my question?

    If you can’t find the answer to your question, you’re most welcome to contact our admin team for assistance: please call or text 0480 385 710, or email admin@aspergersvic.org.au

            About our Group

            Our Young Adults group is a great place for Aspergers, autistic and other similar neurodivergent profile adults aged 18 years - 35 years (approx.) to meet, chat, and play games with no social pressure. As this is a parent/carer-free zone, we invite any parents or carers to attend our separate Parents & Carers group.


            This month, we are running our group meeting online via Zoom. We have included more information about Zoom and how to access the meeting below.


            The session is facilitated by the Young Adult team:

            • Matt, Cal, Sunny, Eleanor & Tim - YA Mentors
            • Lyndel - Young Adults Co-Facilitator


            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.


            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 admin@aspergersvic.org.au to access this.

            If cost is a barrier, please contact Carla: gm@aspergersvic.org.au


              What is Zoom and how do I access the Zoom meeting?

              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 smartphone. When your registration is complete, you will receive a registration confirmation email which includes the Zoom meeting details. We have included more information below about Zoom and how to access the Zoom session.

              You are welcome to have your camera on or off as you prefer. You can also join in the discussion via the chat function via text-based chat function within Zoom. Download the AV Zoom Guide (pdf).
