Ongoing/Drop-In Support Groups for Parents/Family of Adults

Ongoing/Drop-In Parent of Adult Support Groups, also known as Drop-In Support Groups, are in-person groups for parents of adults which meet at regularly scheduled times.  Each group is facilitated by an AANE staff member. Attendees do not have to pre-register Newcomers are always welcome, but for the best ongoing support group experience, we recommend that newcomers contact events@aane.org or the group facilitator to request a phone orientation. Ongoing/Drop-In support groups for adults on the autism spectrum meet in person at regularly scheduled times. Newcomers are always welcome!
