Our groups are comprised of young male and female adults who have Asperger’s or who are cognitively and socially* high-functioning autistic people. They are at least 18 years of age and want to meet other young people who resemble them and who face similar challenges.

Our groups are also comprised of young non-autistic adults: brothers, sisters, parents, friends; others are volunteer psychology, social work,  psychoeducation , speech therapy students. etc. These gatherings are a wonderful opportunity for each participant to better understand the other’s reality.

*Slight degree of difficulties, social and communication skills adequate for group interaction and clear verbal communication, cognitively capable of understanding instructions and of following the trainings, personal hygiene and behaviour that meet social standards, no issues with violence or aggressiveness. A medical, school, or community reference is required.
