Teens Group

Join our Teens Group, for secondary students aged 13 to 18 years.  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 sharing stories or listening to a guest speaker about current teen issues. This is a format where Teens can build independence and discover peers, while their parents can also catch up with their peers. 

Aspergers Victoria volunteers with lived experience run all meetings and will welcome new families. All group leaders have a Working With Children Check.

Thank you to Sisters of Charity for their grant to support the training and development of our AsperTeen group across 2018. 

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

Please Note: A parent MUST accompany their children, and parents are responsible for the supervision and costs of their children at the venue. 

Please note that AV Groups do not provide professional advice, medical advice, counselling, crisis management or case management.  You can find support through our professionals directory or through a number of organisations that do offer crisis support.

    Eastern Parents & Carers Peer Group Meeting
