Periodically, I host coffee meet-ups for parents with children on the autistic spectrum in conjunction with the AAOF.

The AAOF (Autism Association for Overseas Families) was originally set up to enable parents from overseas and living in The Netherlands to meet up and support each other. Over time, families who were originally involved in the group moved away and contact through Facebook took over.

The AAOF functions as a closed parent support group on Facebook.

In 2018, parents in the group expressed a wish to start meeting up again. The first two coffee mornings were held on 11 February 2019 and 8 April 2019. The next date is planned for 17 June 2019 from 10.00-12.00

The coffee morning is free but a donation of €5 towards costs is appreciated. It is held in Leidschendam in Scheepswerf 18. (There is building work in this area, follow yellow diversion signs marked ‘A’, through Doktor van Zeelandstraat.)
