This info about a social support group for young adults was in my inbox this morning.
While I don’t know Max and Nick, the group was recommended by someone I respect. Further, I LOVE Valerie Gaus’s book, Living Well on the Spectrum. (Actually, my copy is missing, so if you have it, perhaps you could return it to me??)
WHAT: Virtual Social Support Group for Young Adults
LOCATION: Zoom: link, RSVP to Nick@cbtspectrum.com and we will send you the link
TIME: Mondays, 4:00pm-5:00pm EST
While not required, weekly participation is recommended.
Group Facilitators: Max Wilson & Nick Lemus
GROUP SUMMARY: This group will be committed to providing support for individuals on the spectrum. We will discuss various skills that our group members would like to learn about and implement in their lives, as well as engage in laid-back group activities. This will be a safe and supportive space for group members to engage in and will be open to suggestions and comments. Weekly meetings will include some time to discuss specific topics related to Autism, loosely based on the book Living Well on the Spectrum by Dr. Valerie Gaus.
11/15: Small Talk
11/22: Active Listening
11/29: Accepting and Giving Compliments
