3. The Nature of Our Group.

⇒ There are no membership requirements or fees for attendance. Of course, the bringing of pastries is always appreciated.

⇒ We are not a 12-step or a “recovery” group. Rather, our group provides a place where parents can give information and support to each other. Everything said will be held in the strictest of confidence. The group is totally non-commercial. In fact, we do not even have a budget.

⇒ Fran and Jim are not M.D.s in psychiatry or Ph.D.s in psychology but are parents of a child with AS. Fran is a professional health educator, while Jim is a professional economist who has his own tendencies toward AS. He will tell you all about them at length in a tedious monotone if you make the mistake of asking him about them.

⇒ Unfortunately, we cannot provide childcare while our meetings are only in English. Some people have brought their own translators.

⇒ Everything said at our meetings is kept in total confidence, while our e-mailing lists are totally secret.

⇒ The organizers of the group are Jim Devine and Fran Goldfarb. Call us for information about Asperger Syndrome or about our support group at 310 636-0101. This is our home phone. Call only after 7 a.m. and before 9 p.m., please. Also, we sleep late on weekends.

⇒  Our main e-mail address is laasperger@gmail.com. However, you can contact Jim at  jdevine@lmu.edu and Fran at beadsme@verizon.net. For e-mails, please use the word “Asperger” in the subject line, so that it’s easier to separate your wheat from the chaff of spam.
