    Eastern Parents & Carers Peer Group Meeting


    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. 

    Some months are focused on a topic of interest and there may be a guest speaker (advised closer to meeting date). Attendance varies from month to month, and it's great to talk to others who have been through similar challenges. 

    Cost:  $5.00 Aspergers Victoria members, or $10 non-members.
