This group focuses on adults that are looking for a positive and safe environment to foster social development. The group meets twice a month (once at the Spectrum meetings and one social outing a month) with 1-2 adult leaders who are trained in helping people on the Autism Spectrum. Adults who have HFA/Asperger’s Syndrome and are reaching out for help and/or seeking friendships with people with similar issues and interests are welcome! For more information about this group, please contact our group leader, Nicky Altikulac, BCBA at (404) 394-3382 or email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members of this group need to be out of high school in order to join the group. Our current members are generally high school graduates, attend college, or are working. Those attending the outings must be able to do so with minimal supervision (1 to 10).
NEW SPECTRUM SATURDAY SOCIAL CLUB FOR ADULTS ON THE SPECTRUM!
Spectrum Saturday Social Club will provide a safe space for adults who are on the autism spectrum. Participants who are out of high school and are 18 years or older, have independent self help skills, and are able to function with little supervision. The group will meet on Saturdays from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm where they will play games, enjoy karaoke, or watch movies with friends. The club will be supervised by professional staff that will facilitate the members to help make new friends and strengthen social skills.
This will be like a gym membership where you pay $150 a quarter to participate one Saturday or all Saturdays in a quarter. You must register but then can attend as often or as little as you want. Next session starts January 6 and runs til March 9. Registration is now open!
