California Spectrum Resources

Welcome to the GRASP resources for California Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Asperger Syndrome.  We list here some organizations that you can reach out to for assistance and support in California.  GRASP has two active support groups in California and we invite you to help us expand our network of support groups.  Visit our page that tells you how to start an Asperger & ASD Support Group in California.


GRASP Support Groups for People with Asperger & Autistic Spectrum Disorders in California

GRASP has support groups in the San Diego, California and Los Angeles, California areas. They meet monthly and are free.  You must enroll as a member though to participate regularly. The support groups are an opportunity for adults with high-functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome to spend some time together.  We create a safe and friendly social environment for people on the autism spectrum (diagnosed or self-identified) to support each other. It is a statement of our independence that we meet and interact without the intermediating presence of neurotypical people.  For specific information on how to participate visit our page for GRASP Support Group San Diego California or GRASP Support Group Los Angeles California.
