FEAT-NT Support Groups

 

SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS FOR PARENTS

Our monthly support group meetings grow each month. FEAT-NT provides free childcare so that families can come and share and learn from one another ways to better help their children. Our parent and sibling support group meetings help families cope with the challenges of autism and to help families feel that they are not alone. Not only do they share their struggles, but also what works for their family, resources and intervention that have helped them. It is also a time to share the strengths and amazing things their kids are doing.

Adults with Aspergers

FEAT-NT provides one of only a few support group meetings for adults with autism in all of Dallas, Tarrant and surrounding counties. We help adults with Aspergers and High Functioning Autism by providing them with resources to find jobs, counseling, therapy, transportation and other services. Our group also provides them the opportunity to meet others like them helping them feel less isolated. Those that attend usually benefit most if they are able to fully communicate as this group meets primarily to discuss aspects of having an ASD. For some of them, our monthly support group meeting is one of their only social opportunities.

When: 2nd calendar Wednesday of every month
Time: 7:00-8:30 pm
Where: FEAT-NT Resource Center & Library
7286 Glenview Drive

Teen Group

FEAT-NT’s teen social group is for teens 13 to 18 years of age with high functioning autism/Aspergers. This program provides social games and pizza dinner for the teens. This non-clinical, parent run, social group focuses on the skills necessary to have a friend over to play – greeting, sharing, turn taking, staying with a friend, flexibility in how a game or activity is done. Parents are encouraged to stay and work with the group to help them engage and have a meaningful social experience.

We ask for a suggested donation of $5 per person, or $10 per family eating to cover food and drinks and can be given upon arrival.
