Fathers of Kids with Asperger's/ASD - Chicagoland Areahttps://www.meetup.com/Aspergers-ASD-Fathers-Chicago/https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/e/7/6/0/global_392519232.jpeg20090408
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!
