Support for Significant Others


AS and Their Partners
This is a semi-private forum for people with Asperger's Syndrome (or those with related issues) and their Partners to try to learn from each other how to cope, support and to better our relationships. Whether it's marital, girl/boyfriend, parent/child, siblings, co-workers or just friendships all related topics are welcome! This place is here to deal with the things that make our relationships difficult and to try to see what we can do to overcome our differences. It's also a place for us to have fun and celebrate the good things that make our relationships so unique! Both the forum and website are free. The Forum requires a username and password setup with Delphi Forums, which offers a free membership.. and that free membership provides full access to our forum. *Please note, that while Delphi Forums has a free subscription, they inundate their free subscribers with ads hoping that you'll get sick of the inconvenience and eventually will prefer to pay a fee and upgrade, but the people that run this actual forum seem to be really good folks. Website: www.ASandTheirPartners.org
Forum: http://forums.delphiforums.com/asandpartners/start

AS/HFA Marriages
This group is for much the same purposes as the AS/HFA Couples above, except it's exclusively for married couples. This way if any marrieds feel more comfortable being in a more exclusive group, they have this option. To access this group go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/joint-AS-HFA-marriages/

ASPIA
or the Asperger Syndrome Partners Information Australia, a wonderful group in South Australia specifically for significant others of adults on the spectrum. Go to http://www.aspia.org.au/

ASPIRES LISTSERV (For Spouses and Family Members)
Sponsored by ASPIRES (Asperger Syndrome Partners & Individuals Resources, Encouragement and Support), an on-line resource for spouses and family members of adults diagnosed or suspected to be on the autistic spectrum. The approach of this group is directed towards solving problems in relationships. The listserv is a closed, subscription list hosted by FEAT. The list is owned and administered by Linda Newland. Email her at OPU@PEAK.org. Individuals wishing to join must contact Linda with introductory information and use their own names and true addresses. Applicants must agree to ASPIRES membership terms and conditions. The URL for ASPIRES is: http://www.aspires-relationships.com/

The ASCEND Group Spouses & Partners
On-line community-based support for spouses and partners of someone who has Asperger's Syndrome or related diagnoses . Members help each other come to terms with AS and the impact on their marriage and family through education, understanding, validation and emotional support. Interactions take place within a context of learning, healing and exploring creative solutions to real time issues. Our intention is to ultimately enhance the quality of life for the family as a whole. We are a support chapter within The ASCEND Group (www.ascendgroup.org) serving families who are dealing with the Autistic Spectrum in the Greater Philadelphia / Tri-State area. Many of our "spouse/partner" group members are from this area and meet in person from time to time. However, membership currently includes and is open to those nationally and internationally. One's spouse or partner does not need to have had a professional diagnosis in order for you to join the group.
For more information, contact the group moderator, Tina Caterino at tcaterino2@gmail.com or 610-994-5760.
