What we do
Autism Adventure’s Social Groups are for people who are on the Autism spectrum, living with high functioning Autism, and/or Asperger’s Syndrome.
If you have someone in your life who is on the Autism Spectrum then you know what loneliness and isolation is.
What kind of life would they have if it was filled with friendships? What kind of life would you have if you could connect with others, who, like you work tirelessly to meet your loved one’s needs? Autism impacts they whole family, building friendships makes life better for all of us.
Yes, you have tried to help them make friends but it always ends the same way and you leave knowing that you won’t be invited back. Or your loved one doesn’t want to go back because it was too painful for them. They felt out of place and could not make sense of it all.
Let’s be up front, the last thing they want is to be around a group of people they don’t know, tying to figure out the right things to say and do. So that they don’t stand out as odd or different. It’s easier to stay in their room and work on their Minecraft build, Ark, Pokemon, Mario Kart, or (whatever, game) score. Hey, multi-player’s gaming is social activity, isn’t it?
We offer a number of different social groups in different locations across Queensland and NSW .
