12 Parents of Children with Autism going
Samantha added this Meetup on Apr 16, 2011
Chance for teens and young adults with Aspergers to socialize in safe environment, make new friends, and give back to the community. Indoor and outdoor activities, group volunteering opportunities, future planning, and...?
I have a 16 year old son with mild Aspergers and would love to work with others in helping him and other teens and young adults build a supportive social network. We could do video gaming, hiking, movies, skating, frisbee, mini-golf, etc.
We could meet for specific events and maybe find space in a community center, library, or church for video game/movie watching?
Please let me know if you're interested!

    Russell Woessner Our son is 18 years old and has Asperger's and some learning issues. He is more of a movie/music kind of guy and not that interested in physical activities. We live in West Mount Airy in Philadelphia and may be interested in joining this group, depending on what you ultimately choose to do. Thanks for trying to organize something.

    Nancy Kleinberg We have a group with parents and teens/young adults from all over. The kids are a bit older, but it would be great if we could coordinate these groups, sometimes meeting in the NE and sometimes other places. I am posting a group for Sunday May 1. Please look for this Bonnie and Russell to try it out. As I said we cna move it around to make it convenient to everyone, but enlarging the group and the options would be better, I think, than dividing things.

    Nancy Kleinberg Hi Everyone,
    I just realized our group is for older teens from around 17/18-22. Maybe a group for teens from 13/14-17 would be a good idea. Still I would be happy for anyone to ask me questions or contact me to try to coordinate or tell you our experiences.

    Deanna Strippoli Hello! We live in Langhorne, PA. Our son is nearly 14 (8th grade) and we would LOVE to find some peers for him to interact with. He is diagnosed with Asperger's Sydrome and his interests lean toward movies (Star Wars/Star Trek/Matrix), anime/manga comics, and drawing. He is in a bowling league and enjoys "shooting hoops". We would DEFINITELY participate in group social activities in the NE Philly as long as the time/dates worked for us! I hope to meet some new friends soon. Thank you!!

    Samantha I love the idea of joining these groups--how can we do that? Ideally, I'm hoping to have a weekly "something" for Nick in the area. Nick is very much a gamer and anime fan, so something along those lines would be cool, but it'd be great to do some outdoorsy stuff (fishing sounds great, Susan, with frisbee or something too, if fishing's not your thing) This might be easier to talk them into after they've gotten to know each other?
    Maybe we could do a once a month thing as a larger group???
