OCASG Women’s Discussion Group

June 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Women with ASD and parents of girls with ASD sometimes feel lost with a male-dominated diagnosis. In response, the Orange County Asperger’s Support Group (OCASG) will be holding a women-only discussion group for women (ages 18 and up) who have a diagnosis (or suspected diagnosis) of Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism or PDD-NOS or women who have a daughter dealing with ASD. The group will be led by Asperger’s expert, Dr. Ali Arena.

The first meeting this year will be held on Saturday, June 17 from 10 am to 11:30 noon. Please note that an OCASG Liability Waiver is required. If you have not signed one yet, upon registering, an email will be sent to you with information. Upon confirmation of an executed Liability Waiver, you will be sent login information.

The fee is $20 per session for members of OCASG. $30 per family for non-members, payable below. Reserve your spot and pay in advance by clicking on the button below:
