Event Type
December 9, 2023
11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Time Commitment

(formerly Plainview, NY) This open group meets on the second Saturday of the month and is for individuals (ages 15-19) who are Autistic or who suspect they are. All AANE-facilitated support groups provide information, connection, and community where participants can share similar issues and concerns and celebrate successes. Groups are designed for teens on the spectrum.  Parents and other family members should not attend the groups.

This event is free due to a generous grant from The Butler Foundation.


AANE Teen Support Groups, Social Groups, and events are intended for teens on the spectrum who are able to self-regulate AND independently participate in activities without the assistance of a dedicated caretaker.


Advanced registration is required.  After you have registered, a confirmation email is sent with a link to attend the program. Registrants who do not receive the confirmation email should check their email spam folder. Registration closes 24 hours prior to the event. Early registration is highly recommended as many programs fill quickly.
