Asperger Syndrome Partner Information Australia
A place for validation, information, and inspiration
Mutual acknowledgement and understanding of the Asperger marriage/life partnership experience for partners of adults with (or suspected of having) Asperger syndrome
ASPIA is a Sydney-based support group and information source for those who are involved in or interested in marriage and long-term relationships with adults with Asperger syndrome (or suspected of having Asperger syndrome).
We host a regular Partner Support Group Meeting in Burwood, Sydney, on the second Saturday of the month and in 2020 meetings will be held quarterly on 8 February, 9 May, 8 August, 14 November.
Our Next ASPIA Partner Support Group meeting will be Saturday 9 May 2020 - see note below *
Our Presenter for this meeting will be Clinical Psychologist Jeroen Decates, who has a practice in Hornsby, Sydney. Details of his topic will be provided closer to the meeting date.
* Due to the closure of Clubs at present and the need for social distancing, we are exploring video-link or webinar options so the presentation can still go ahead. We are aware that support for partners is still extremely important.
We will update this space once we have a plan.
