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.
DUE TO LATEST COVID-19 RISK, UNFORTUNATELY THIS SATURDAY'S ASPIA MEETING WILL BE VIA ZOOM AGAIN, NOT FACE TO FACE - please email if you would like to be included.
Our Presenter will be Clinical Psychologist JEROEN DECATES, who has been providing yearly educational sessions to our group for 18 years.
Jeroen's presentations are wonderfully informative and practical, and he loves random questions, so come prepared to ask what you need to.
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.
