Skype Support-Group for Neurotypical Ladies in ASD+NT Relationships

In counseling couples affected by autism spectrum disorder, it weighs heavy on my heart for both the spouse with the disorder and his or her NT partner. Both suffer in too many cases. 

Having said that, I think it’s important to have a support group other than Facebook where hurting partners can congregate and meet face-to-face rather than through texting and messaging in Facebook - sharing their stories, and possibly sharing some things that have made a bad situation less problematic. So, in the Spirit of providing a deeper level of support, I’ve created a Skype group. This one will be for NT ladies only

Click on the link below to join this group. You will need the Skype app on your device. I will be monitoring this group periodically. But for the most part, I will just stay out of the way [other than providing articles and videos that will hopefully be of some assistance]. 

My suggestion is to click on the link, join the group, then send out a message in the text area regarding your availability [i.e., days/times] to chat with others. Simply state that you have an interest in talking to other ladies in the group. Also, it would be helpful to provide your time zone so that others can coordinate with your availability. After you post your message in the Skype group, log-in periodically to see who saw your message and wants to set-up a time to meet with you.

SCHEDULED CALLS: We will have 2 to 3 scheduled calls per week as well. By clicking on the link below, you will be able to see the exact days/times of these meetings, and you can join one or both if it fits into your schedule.

Sometimes there’s nothing more healing than being with a group of others who are experiencing the same roller-coaster ride as you! And research shows that face-to-face contact [even via the Internet] provides many of the same emotional/social benefits as socializing with others offline.

If you are lonely, depressed and at your wits-end, this just may be something that can help pull you out of the doldrums - at least briefly. Members are free to meet as frequently as they want.

Email me ASAP if you experience any problems:


God bless!

Mark Hutten, M.A.
