This group is for fathers of children with Asperger's Syndrome (including PDD-NOS and other ASD issues) to get together and share the unique experience of being a father of a child on the spectrum, and to arrange recreational activities for the kids too.   The reason this is designed for fathers specifically is that almost all of the support groups I have seen on this topic are for mothers, or are dominated by mothers.  Parenting ASD kids affects men in a unique way, and spectrum kids need male presence that meets their needs too.

While geared primarily towards "high-functioning" ASD issues, we all have common stories and strategies to share.  All are welcome!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
