Manhattan Parent and Caregiver Support Group

NAA NY Metro Chapter is proud to make available a monthly support group in Manhattan for parents and caregivers of individuals on the autism spectrum moderated by Adam J. Holstein, PD, LP. We are excited to have him supporting this group allowing us to relaunch the Manhattan support group, which has been active since 2009. If you are interested in learning and sharing more about ASD but are not a parent or caregiver, we encourage you to participate in our many other programs and activities.

Generally, the support group is held on the first Monday of every month from 7pm to 8:30 pm and is located at:
Atlas Foundation for Autism
252 W. 29th St., 3rd Floor (off of 8th Ave.)
New York, NY 10001

See direction information below

Adam J. Holstein, PD, LP, the group moderator, has a Master’s degree in School Psychology from St. John’s University and a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Yeshiva University. Mr. Holstein obtained his license as a Psychoanalyst after graduating from the Washington Square Institute for Psychoanalysis and Mental Health. He has been involved in the field of early childhood development and education for 30 years. In this time, he has worked in therapeutic schools, daycare centers, private homes, and private practice settings. The primary focus of his professional career has been on assisting families whose children demonstrate behaviors that interfere with the learning process, particularly those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum disorder.

Space is limited for the support group sessions. Please RSVP to and you will receive a confirmation email back. We will send out a monthly reminder. Please remember to RSVP each month and indicate that you will be attending the MANHATTAN group.

While we will make every effort to adhere to this schedule, please understand that there may be times when the moderator needs to reschedule a meeting. If this occurs, we will post any changes to our website and notify directly (by e-mail) those who have already sent us an RSVP for that meeting.
