Online Adult (50+) Wednesday Evening Support Group Series

February 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, $80.00










This adult support group series is designed for adults (50+) who are on the autism spectrum. Through this support group series, adults (50+) can build an ongoing connection with a small community of other adults. AANE adult support group series also give adults an opportunity to voice their concerns and frustrations. It also lets them acknowledge hard-won and unexpected victories.

Moderator: The group will be moderated by Jennifer DeSanctis-Narby. Jennifer is an AANE LifeMap coach and she also facilitates several in-person AANE Parent of Adult Support groups and leads three AANE PoA online groups. Jennifer’s motto is “What else can go right?”  Coaching LifeMap clients and leading parent groups is her passion. By helping them shift their perspective to what can go right, she is able to help them make significant positive changes in their lives. Jennifer says, “ I’m constantly amazed by parents’ commitment to their adult child’s future, but I also recognize that this commitment can be all-consuming and draining.” Contact: jenniferdesanctisnarby@gmail.com

A strong internet connection and a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone are required for this group.
