SOCIAL CLUB for Adults with ASD
Wednesdays | 7:00-8:00 pm | Zoom Meeting
This group is on Summer Break from June 1 to August 31.
ASGA had such a great response to our first Social Club for Adults with ASD that we decided to allow participants the option to “drop-in” every Wednesday evening, allowing for even more chances to meet new people! The Adult Social Club is for ages 18 and over and offers a way for you to connect and make friends with other adults with ASD who share interests and life’s challenges. The Social Club for Adults is designed for individuals who can take turns and participate in small group settings with a reliable form of language and an age-appropriate cognitive level.
WHAT TO EXPECT
MEET THE LEADERS
Tess Gladstone is currently a graduate student pursuing her PhD in Clinical Psychology. She loves being a therapist and a researcher. Born and raised in Cleveland, she remains an avid Cleveland sports fan. Living on the east coast for several years, she also has an appreciation for New Haven style Apizza- mashed potatoes on a pizza which she says you should try! Outside of working hours you are most likely to find her running outside, reading a mystery or historical fiction novel, binging Hulu, playing with her nieces/nephew, or drinking a hot chocolate.
Zachary Strickler works at Kent State University in the Student Accessibility Services office. His education is in rehabilitation counseling. He has ASD in the form of Asperger's. This gives him an insight into the disability through a personal and professional light. He also likes many nerdy activities like D&D and wood working.
GUIDELINES TO PARTICIPATE
The Club is not considered a therapy group and is not equipped for that purpose. It is only intended to provide an opportunity for connections and fun interactions among individuals of a similar age.
