AANE Support Group Regarding Connecticut Tragedy

The Asperger’s Association of New England (AANE) has announced the formation of support groups for those with Asperger’s and/or their families who would like support regarding the tragedy in Connecticut.  AANE, in conjunction with Aspire (formerly YouthCare) will facilitate six groups run by staff from Aspire, AANE, as well as with Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) expert clinicians. These groups will provide a private setting to discuss the tragedy, the link the media has made between the shooter and AS, and the impact on those with AS and their families. One of the support groups will be for parents of children with Asperger’s, and will discuss how and whether to talk to children with Asperger’s about this event. You are invited to attend the appropriate group.Here is a listing of the Groups and when they will meet
