Peer Support

Asperger’s Social and Support Group at Queen's

All students with Autism/ASD who are registered with Disability Services, are invited to attend the Asperger’s Social and Support Group at Queen’s.

The Group meets at least once a month during term-time, usually in the Students Union.  It is a peer-led group that provides an additional opportunity for students to develop friendships, share experiences and offer each other support and guidance. Group activities vary and depend on members’ interests, e.g. watching a film, visiting local places of interest, going out for lunch, as well as workshops on relevant topics. Over the last number of years, the group has been supported to agree a quieter lunch space in the Union where students with ASD can take some time to unwind from the busy atmosphere of University life.
