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.
Due to the closure of Clubs at present, and the need for social distancing, we will be holding this meeting online via "Zoom".
Our Presenter for this meeting will be Clinical Psychologist Jeroen Decates, who has a practice in Hornsby, Sydney. His topic will be "The difference between people whose thoughts are anchored in emotion versus people whose thoughts are not anchored in emotion".
This meeting is 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.
