SW WA Dads’ Autism Support Group
Autism Empowerment facilitates a monthly support group in Vancouver, WA for dads and male caregivers in the Southwest Washington and Portland metro area. We’ve held regular meetings since 2013 and newcomers are always welcome.
Casual – Impactful – Meaningful Support
Open to dads and male caregivers who are supporting children, teens and adults of all abilities on the autism spectrum or with similarly profiled neurological differences. Some dads in our group are parenting school-age children and some are parenting adults. Some are married, some are single. We all have something to contribute to building our community stronger.
Sometimes we have monthly topics of discussion. Often we will casually chat about what is important to us at the time. We consider ourselves a friendly and open group of men who want the best for the kids and adults we support.
- 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 6:30 – 8:30 PM. We also invite you and your family to join in with other Autism Empowerment activities.
