Young Adults With Asperger's Social Group

Please note our new web address as of 9/1/2014 will be:

This site will not be updated after 9/1/2014

This group is open to young adults and their parents/caregivers.


This social group is for young adults (18 years old and older) with Asperger's who live in Franklin County and the surrounding area.  Members of the group meet informally for the purpose of making new friends and participating in activities that interest young adults with Asperger's. There are no dues or  membership fees.


Past Activities include:       


  • Miniature Golf and Arcade Games at Cluggy's Amusement Center
  • Video game night
  • Picnic at Caledonia State Park
  • Pizza parties
  • Visiting  the Smithsonian Natural History Museums
  • BBQ's

While we would certainly like to see participation in the group's activities, our hope is that each young adult finds a friend or two within the group that they interact with on a regular basis independent of the group.

Parents and/or caregivers also meet informally to network and share experiences in transitioning their young adult from high school towards independent living.

Who We Are

We are  the parents of a young adult with Asperger's residing in the Franklin County area. We found that once our young adult graduated from high school, there were very few social opportunities for young adults with Asperger's to regularly participate. This social group was formed to fill that void for the young adults and to provide parents/caregivers an opportunity to network and discuss the challenges facing our young adults.
