Fathers’ Group

Welcome to AANE father's group! We were formed in 2016 by David Sugar and Benedikt Sander, two dads in our community. Dave and Benedikt have created a group where fathers can share their experiences, support one another, and acquire tools to parent their children more confidently.

What if I don’t live in Massachusetts?

Meanwhile, keep in mind that staff in AANE Child and Teen Services, and AANE Adult Services, welcome opportunities to speak with fathers (and grandfathers!) about your family members on the autism spectrum. If you have a lot of questions or concerns, you may wish to sign up for a one hour Parent Coaching session. Coaching is available no matter where you live, as we can speak with you in person, by phone or over Skype.
