Young Adults

If you are a young adult with Aspergers aged 18 to 35 years having left school, then this group may suit your needs. Meetings are held in the Eastern suburbs on the 4th Thursday of the month, February to November except public holidays.  Occasional social outings are arranged from this group.  Meet other young adults, participate in discussions that determine your own life, and listen to the occasional speaker in a friendly inclusive environment.  

Parents and carers do not attend this group, and are welcome to attend the Parents & Carers of Young Adults Group.  

Young Adults with lived experience run all meetings, and will welcome new attendees.  It is expected that group members independently manage their own email to and from the Young Adults group.

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

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.

    Parents & Carers Hub: Online / Phone Peer Meeting Discussion


    Due to the changing conditions with COVID-19, we have decided to move to an online meeting via a web-based application called Zoom. So let's come together online and have a general peer discussion to discuss how we've been managing, share ideas and concerns and ensure we find some calm in this situation. See below for more about what Zoom is. 

    This peer meeting is for parents, grandparents and carers (of a person with Aspergers or High Functioning Autism / ASD 1-2) to meet, share their experiences and support eachother. We have a range of parents who attend, who have children of varying ages from toddlers through to young adults. The group is facilitated to allow opportunity for all attendees to talk if they wish. Attendance varies from month to month and it's great to talk to others who have been through similar challenges.  

    Cost:  $5 AV Members, $10  Please book and pay online before attending, You will receive the link to join the meeting when your payment is done and you will receive a Event Confirmed email containing this link. 

    Discussion  Topic:

    Coping with new challenges of online schooling and social isolation for ourselves and our families.
