I host monthly 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. The AAOF now 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 coffee morning was held on 11 February 2019 and this academic year we will meet monthly on the 2nd Monday of the month.

Parents are welcome to bring their young children to the coffee morning. There is a play corner available. You do not have to be a member of the AAOF to attend.
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.)
To let me know that you are coming to a coffee meet-up, it is helpful (but not essential) if you sign up here:
