The Autism Support Group was started in 2006 by Nancy McPartlin at the Barnert Hospital in Paterson after a similar group she started at Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx. We are parents of children with autism and related developmental disorders. We welcome anyone-parent or professional, who is affected by autism. We invite any speakers willing to address issues related to Autism treatments and to provide information to help your child. We usually meet every fourth Friday of the month.
