A group-based education program for people with Asperger’s Syndrome

People with Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) have the same sexual needs and concerns, and are as diverse in their sexuality as the general population. However, adolescents and adults with AS can be different in terms of their ability to ‘read’ and understand the subtle and complex thoughts and emotions of people they engage with.
Individuals with AS can also struggle to effectively communicate their own inner thoughts and feelings.

Nice to Meet Me is designed for people living with AS to improve the quality of their life and their intimate relationships.

The program focuses on:
 Identifying your emotions and the emotions of others
 Recognising values with respect to love, friendship and sexuality
 Applying the concept of consent
 Discussing appropriate behaviours for private and public places
 Determining various aspects of sexual relations
 Improving communication skills
