SW WA Dads’ Autism Support Group
Autism Empowerment facilitates a monthly support group in Vancouver, WA for men living in, working in or visiting the Southwest Washington area. Our support group has been meeting most months since 2013 and newcomers are always welcome.
Casual – Impactful – Meaningful Support
Monthly meetings with Quarterly family events
Open to dads, grandfathers and male caregivers who are supporting children, teens and adults of all ages with Autism, Asperger’s or other neurological differences.
Sometimes we have monthly topics of discussion. Often the men will talk about what is important to us at the time. We consider ourselves a friendly and open group who wants the best for our youth and adults we support. We also enjoy doing quarterly events.
- Bring: Yourself and any resources you might like to share
- Snacks, beverages and sponsorship provided by Autism Empowerment
Please join us at our next meeting! We have support meetings on the 3rd Friday of most months from 7 – 9 PM. We also invite you and your family to join in with other Autism Empowerment activities.
