Time Commitment

This “closed” support group is for parents who have an Autistic adult child 30+ years of age. Other adult family caregivers may also register for this group. “Closed” support groups are ideal for parents and other adult family caregivers who want to go beyond sharing their stories with newcomers each time at open support group meetings

AANE support groups provide an opportunity for parents and family caregivers to voice their concerns and frustrations and celebrate hard-won and unexpected victories. Although each group will focus on different themes and questions, here are some of the most common ones:

  • Now that your child is an adult, how do you support and/or parent without power?
  • How do you keep the lines of communication open?
  • How can you help the Autistic adult find and sustain employment and live independently?
  • How do you motivate them to expand their social network?
  • What types of services have other families used and what were the results?
  • How have other members tapped into health, income, housing, and other benefits?
