If you’re a dad of an Aspie kid, you know that it can be a wild ride. There are the highs of seeing your child’s unique talents and perspectives, and the lows of dealing with challenging behaviors and social situations. But one thing that can make all the difference is having a support network of other dads who understand what you’re going through.
Here are just a few of the benefits of connecting with other Dads of Aspies:
- You can vent and share your experiences without judgment. Sometimes, all you need is a sympathetic ear from someone who knows what you’re talking about. Dads of Aspies get it.
- You can learn from each other. Other dads have been there, done that, and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. They can give you tips on everything from dealing with meltdowns to helping your child navigate the school system.

- You can make friends! Raising an Aspie kid is a lot of work, but it can also be a lot of fun. When you connect with other dads, you can build friendships with people who share your interests and experiences.
