Support group formed for Asperger’s partners

By May 2, 2011

A free education and support group for female partners of men with Asperger’s Syndrome will meet from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, May 10, at the UC Davis MIND Institute, 2825 50th St. in Sacramento.

Therapists Sally B. Watkins, L.C.S.W., and Marilyn Perry, Ph.D., will lead the group, which will continue on the second Tuesday of each month.

A formal diagnosis is not required to attend the group. Asperger’s is a form of high-functioning autism, and is characterized by difficulty expressing emotion, difficulty reading behavioral and non-verbal cues, and the inability to recognize differing perceptions and feelings in others.

For more information, contact Watkins at (916) 939-8249 or [email protected]
