    How to communicate effectively?

    I am in a support group for women who have been in abusive relationships, most of us are codependent or low self-esteem. Some of us have been abused. A woman has started coming and she told us she had Asperger's. She sometimes arrives late, often interrupts and talks very loudly. It's disrupting, most of us are very sensitive. We are there to give and receive support. She doesn't talk about her situation much, and when she does she makes excuses, she doesn't seem to want to change. Sometimes, she will say something very intelligent and appropriate. Most of the time though, she makes things uncomfortable. Any advice on how to deal with her? She doesn't seem aware of the effect she has on the rest of us.
