    Teens Hub: Online Peer Meeting Discussion

    Teens on Discord, Parents on Zoom


    The Teens have been having a great time together these past few months playing games together on Discord, so we thought we would do it again!  We hope to be back to face-to-face for August at Ashwood.  Coronavirus hasn't stopped our meetings, we have just moved them  to an online meeting format, via two web-based applications - one called Discord (for the teens) and another called Zoom (for parents). 

    Parents can come together and chat about how they’ve been managing, share ideas and support to maintain connections with each other.  Meanwhile the Teens can enjoy a few rounds of "Secret Hitler" or some other "Jackbox" games. See below for more about what Zoom and Discord are.

    This is a popular group where you can meet new friends and catch up with old buddies, enjoy an environment with no social pressure and have an enjoyable night out! Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Cost:  Free for month of July. However you must still please book online before attending. Once registered, you will receive an Event Confirmed email containing the Zoom link. Courtesy of a grant from the Department of Human Services.

    What is Discord?

    Discord is a free voice, video and text chat app for teens and adults ages 13 and up. It was created to bring people together through a love of gaming. Teens can access Discord via their PC, browser, or mobile phone. Once there, they can join a chat they’ve been invited to or they can create private servers and invite their friends to play and chat (voice, text or video). They can also message each other individually or in group chats with up to ten other friends. Here is a useful Parents' Guide to Discord Blog you can review.

    During the registration process for this event, you will be asked to review our AV Teens Discord Code of Conduct document and your teen must agree to this in order to register for the meeting. 

    Is it safe for our teens to use?

    Yes, we have created a dedicated, secure server for the meeting and only our teens who register will be given the link to participate. Our moderators will have the list of registered teens and will only allow them to be online during the meeting.

    Adults Hub: Online / Phone Peer Meeting Discussion - “Comorbidities, Meltdowns and Shutdowns"


    Due to the changing conditions with COVID-19, we had to an online meeting via a web-based application called Zoom. We hope to be back to face-to-face at Ashwood for August meeting.  See below for more about what Zoom is.  

    We had an excellent turnout for last month's meeting and encourage you to give it a try and join us. Discussion topic: Comorbidities, Meltdowns and Shutdowns. 

    It is not uncommon for someone diagnosed with Aspergers or Autism Level 1, to receive a second and concurrent diagnosis such as ADHD, OCD or Depression. This is called a comorbidity. In this meeting, we will discuss comorbid diagnoses: which ones have people received, how do they relate to the Aspergers or autism, and how are they managed effectively.

    We will also look at some of the worst consequences of the sensory sensitivities discussed last month: the meltdown and shutdown. What causes them? Can they be foreseen and averted? How to manage them when they happen, and what can others do to help?

    This group is for our older Adult peer group attendees.  It is more suitable for those who are aged 35 years and over, although younger adults may still attend if they wish to.  (Young adults may prefer to attend the other younger adult meetings: see our event list).

    Cost:  $5 AV Members, $10 Non-Members. Please book and pay online before attending, You will receive the link to join the meeting when your payment is done and you will receive a Event Confirmed email containing this link.
