Teens Hub: Online Peer Meeting Teens on Discord, Parents on Zoom
Our Teens group is for Aspergers / autistic (level 1-2) teens to meet and hang out to play games or chat, while their parents/carers meet in another room to create social connection, chat about their experiences, share ideas and advice, and support each other.
Both groups have moved online due to COVID-19 restrictions in Melbourne. The Teens meet via Discord, and the Parents/Carers meet via Zoom. We have provided links to more information about both programs and how to access the meetings below. Teens and parents are welcome to participate as much or as little as you feel comfortable, and you can have your video and microphone off if you prefer.
Please note that each teen must be accompanied by a parent also attending, and you will be asked to confirm that your Teen agrees to the Teens Discord Code of Conduct in order to register for the meeting.

Cost: FREE again this month, courtesy of a COVID-19 grant from the Department of Health and Human Services. You need to register to access the Zoom and Discord links. After registering, you will receive a registration confirmation email containing the link and meeting details for Discord and Zoom.
What is Zoom?
Zoom is a free web-based video conferencing program. You can download it onto your computer or phone/tablet, or you can dial in and participate via your phone (landline or smart phone). Download the AV Zoom Guide (pdf).
What is Discord?
Discord is a free voice, video and text chat app for teens and adults aged 13 and over. Teens can access Discord via their computer or smart phone. Using Discord, they can join servers they have been invited to, create private servers with their friends, or message each other individually or in group chats. We suggest reading the Parents' Guide to Discord Blog before joining for the first time.
Is it safe for our teens to use?
Yes. Aspergers Victoria have created a dedicated, secure server for our Teens group. Only registered participants can access the AV Teens Discord server, and the link changes monthly for security. Our moderators have the list of registered teens and will only allow them to be online during the meeting.
