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 - ASD, Autism Spectrum Disorder).
We host a regular Partner Support Group Meeting in Burwood, Sydney, on the second Saturday of the month and in 2021 meetings will be held quarterly on 13 February, 8 May, 14 August, 13 November. See below for "latest news" about our meetings.
Our next ASPIA Partner Support Group meeting will be held on Saturday 13th February 2021 at 2.00pm.
Our Presenter will be Nola Norris, who has been ASPIA's Web Developer, and a valuable "in-house" educator since 2005. For a sneak peak at Nola's work, please visit her website www.nelt.com.au.
At this stage (November 2020) we cannot confirm if the February meeting will be via Zoom, or back at Club Burwood, but we will update this page when we know.
Please remember our meetings are exclusively for those who are in a relationship with an adult on the spectrum, or non-ASD family members of an adult on the spectrum.
