  1. We live in Louisville, KY. Will this Aspicon only be relevant to those who live in the Charlotte, NC area? We have a 10 year old Aspie son and we have struggled for almost a year looking for resources for him.

    • Thanks so much for your note, but I’m sorry to hear how difficult it’s been to find resources for your son. This is the first year for AspieCon so the resources will be most relevant for those living in Charlotte and the surrounding area. As we grow we hope to be able to offer more regional and national sponsors.
      In the meantime, follow us on Facebook and Twitter as we will be periodically post info that may be helpful to you all. If you haven’t already, visit the Autism Society of America website to see if there is an affiliate chapter in the Louisville area (www.autism-society.org).

    • Hey no need to struggle with Asperger’s syndrome anymore I am also in Aspie and have received some amazing treatments that are non-invasive call Neurofield! You can find the website easily the doctors name Nicholas Dogris – his provider list is nationwide and they do work with people on the sliding scale sometimes

  2. I understand Raleigh has a lot of aspies… So does Austin Texas. Might there be a different venue yearly?

    • We are a group of psychologists based in Charlotte so it would be tough to change the venue. With that said… we’ve received several requests and we certainly dream big so who knows! Thanks so much for your interest and please join us if you are able.

  3. We are in Metro-Atlanta. I see from above that most resources are for the Charlotte area, but we are wondering if there are fun things for my 17 year old daughter to do. She really enjoys gaming, and would love to meet other aspies. Thank you for this!

    • You’re right. Most resources are for the Charlotte area at this time but we hope to expand as we grow. As for the fun stuff… I do think your daughter will find fun things to do. We have just confirmed that Kerbal Space Academy will be there to livestream and we’ll have a few gaming stations set up. There will also be character meet and greets and cosplay is welcome if she’s into that. We’ll have character artists, crafts, animals, and panels (Intro to Asperger’s, Ask the ASD experts, Intro to Cosplay, etc.), food trucks, etc. I hope you all will join us!
