AZ ASSIST: Meeting for Teens on the Autism Spectrum

Anytime I can help promote an autism or Asperger’s Syndrome support group, I do it. Here is information about the next meeting of a support group in the metro-Phoenix, Arizona area.

Autism Spectrum Support, Information & Strategies for Transition
Parents, Teens, Young Adults
Next Meeting: Monday September 20th 7-9pm
2150 East Southern Avenue, Tempe

We have a new location with lots of space! Please join us at our SEPTEMBER MEETING on September 20, 2010 from 7-9pm at 2150 East Southern Avenue, Tempe on the northwest corner of the 101 & Southern Avenue on the campus of EdOptions High School.

Our speaker is Christopher Tiffany, Family Support Specialist with Raising Special Kids. Chris will share with us about Evaluations & Assessments so that we can learn about types of tests and what they measure, plus scoring results and what the bell curve means in formal assessments.

Also joining us will be Geoff Rubin, a Mobile Fitness Trainer, certified through the American Council on Exercise. He has dedicated his work to children and young adults with High Functioning Autism, Asperger’s syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Geoff offers both physical and educational approaches to fitness that address the needs of each individual. Contact by email @ geoffrey.rubin [AT} gmail [DOT] com or by phone 928-380-5550. Website:
