About the Autistic Parents' Support Group

The Autistic Parents' Support Group is an autistic peer-led group of parents who are, themselves, on the autism spectrum. (Their children may, or may not, be autistic too.) The group's purpose is to support each other in coping with the responsibilities of being a parent..

We aim to be a demographically diverse group, welcoming autistic parents of all ages (18+), races, national origins, sexual orientations, and gender identities.

Meeting times will be listed, for now, on the Meetup site of Autistic in NYC / Queens.
