When teen geeks gather in groups....

Aspie teen joined a new social group for teens on the spectrum and wow!
He had a wonderful time :)
They met and chatted with Wendy Lawson, ate pizza, compared obsessions and plotted more LOLCats.
Apparently they yakked geek stuff for ages then they had to choose a group activity to do for next month, where they have to work together....yep, they're bringing their laptops and will be making a computer program to build computer games.
Ahhh, geek heaven!
Remember ....
Dr Sheldon Cooper is but one lab accident away from being a super villain!

That's pretty cool! I hope we can find a similar group when Amy is older. Or even now, talking to other mums IRL would be nice. Until then, I'll rely on my blog mums to keep me sane.

It's great to find a social skills group where your child is appropriately placed! That's awesome!

It's amazing how much support, mentally, you can get from just talking to other mums who are walking the same road, Veronica (((hugs))).

It's a big boost for him to be around other Aspies, Cheryl, he feels normal and more relaxed :)

LOL Exactly, Fi ;)

Good, Kim :)

Yes, River. The writers haven't said the character is Aspie but Jim Parsons has stated the character couldn't be more Aspie.

The t-shirt tickled my funnybone, too, Mrs C ;)

Thanks, Cheryl, I will :)

Yep, Jen, it sounds like a well-thought out concept :)
