Support and Social Groups for Couples and Partners
These groups provide unique support opportunities for those in relationships, in which one or both individuals have an Asperger profile. As safe and understanding forums comprised of partners of those with Asperger profiles, these groups provide spaces for people to give and to receive relationship feedback specific to their needs. We currently offer online groups available to people all over the world as well as in-person groups in New York, New York.
