Self Advocacy Group for Adults with Aspergers
    20 July 2010

Just Advocacy and the National Autistic Society have partnered to facilitate Self Advocacy Groups for adults who have all been diagnosed with either Asperger syndrome or High Functioning Autism. These groups currently run in 2 locations (Camberley and Reigate) in Surrey. During sessions the topic for discussion is decided by the group (the most popular topics tend to be to do with relationships and managing in difficult or awkward social situations) and everyone is encouraged to share their ideas, potential areas of difficulty and suggestions for coping strategies. The group also goes on regular outings that are decided upon collectively. These have so far taken place locally during normal session hours but the group is planning an outing for the summer that would take them further afield-some suggestions have been to go to London, the coast or a theme park. We do ask for a £1 contribution per session for refreshments and individuals need to fund themselves for outings.
