I have noticed that there is no meetup thread for the American south-east.
There are basically no aspie support groups here either.
I live right along the border of Florida and Alabama. I go to see family in New Orleans almost every month.

I have no idea where or how to plan a meet up but I would suggest a book store,museum or national park.
Meeting other aspies would make me feel less isolated. I have never met another aspie and I would really like to.

Are any other aspies interested? Nothing is planned so I am basically open to everyone's ideas.

I'm on the Alabama-Georgia Border and I might partake if it is within reasonable distance.

I live on the Arkansas/Missouri border in the Twin Lakes area (Mountain Home). About two hours away from Branson or Springfield, MO. Like others here, I haven't had much interaction with "my own kind" so I'm interested in just about any kind of get together or activity within a reasonable distance. Or, since, this is sort of a summer resort area, let me know if you'll be visiting the area.

Hi all... I started an adults-only support group for autistics in early 2011 in Chattanooga, TN. Sorry I never posted until now.

The GCA Centre for Adult Autism has two support groups. The GCA Chattanooga group meets on the first Tuesday evening of each month from 5:30-7:00 PM. The GCA North Georgia group meetings on the second Thursday evening of each month from 5:45-7:00 PM.

For more information, contact Scott Kramer at [email protected]. Thanks.
