Chatroom for Aspies for Social Success

At scheduled times, a text-based chatroom will be made available on this page for support group meetings of Aspies for Social Success (AFSS).


The chatroom is not currently available. It will be available during, and for an hour or two before and after, scheduled group chat meetings.


Although AFSS is not directly affiliated with this website, we are hosting this chatroom for AFSS as a temporary replacement for in-person meetings during the CoViD-19 crisis. For AFSS's schedule, see Calendar on the AFSS website.

Featured page:  Where to get an ASD evaluation as an adult.

It's not easy to find psychotherapists who are qualified to diagnose autism spectrum disorder, especially in adults.

On the above-linked page is a preliminary list of places where some members of local support groups obtained their diagnoses. Soon this list will be updated to include many more places and, for those already listed, more information about insurance, other reduced-cost options, etc.
