We have over 220 members in our group. They range in age from 18 to 65 plus. The majority of our members are single. We have a 2/1 male/female ratio in our membership. Some of our members are self-diagnosed. Most have been professionally diagnosed at varying times in their lives. We operate a Yahoo listserv for our members. We have an extensive lending library of more than 100 books and other materials on Autism/AS available to members.
Please Note: This Support Group is open ONLY to ADULTS THEMSELVES with AS, PDD-NOS or HFA. Membership information is kept through the main GRASP office, so you must subscribe before you can attend. This allows your membership to remain as anonymous as you desire. We respectfully request that anyone in attendance not share with others the names of anyone else they have seen at a meeting.

(out of over 6,500 people, we've luckily only had to use this 7 times.
But there'll be more— we are vulnerable by design as we do not demand that everyone bring often-expensive proof of diagnosis)
