OCASG's wonderful support group for spouses, partners, and significant others of individuals with high-functioning Autism and Asperger’s is kicking off our book club. These sessions will be facilitated by coach and author, Kealah Parkinson. During each meeting we will work together through a chapter of her book, sharing experiences and lessons-learned.  You do not need to have previously attended a partner group meeting to attend. The price is $15 per person.

About Kealah Parkinson
Kealah (KEY-la) Parkinson is Coach Kiki, podcast host, author & Communications Coach who helps pros & parents alike cycle out of fight-or-flight in the moment by feeling body messages & emotions. She is co-author/contributing author to two Amazon book titles & two self-published works. Coach Kiki's mission: Speak your truth with confidence.

Kealah first spoke to OCASG members when she co-presented with fellow authors, Susan Moreno and Marci Wheeler regarding The Partner’s Guide to Asperger Syndrome. In this book, the authors “interviewed over 100 couples in which one partner has ASD and the other is nonspectrum (NS). Their aim: to provide insight and guidance to NS partners who want to create a successful relationship for both parties. Each chapter ends with a list of "lessons learned" from the couples interviewed. The authors cover communication, social skills, and sensory processing and provide many real-life examples drawn from the experiences of the interviewed couples. Tony Attwood’s foreword highlights potential relationship problems that individuals with ASD typically encounter. VERDICT: Excellent insight and tips for anyone in, or considering, a relationship with a person with ASD, as well as the friends and families of couples with an ASD partner." - Library Journal
