Sorry to hear about the end of the meetings.The first meeting I could attend turned into a stay at home snow day for my kid, and then I started a new job and was unable to attend. It is probably no surprise that spectrum parents are stressed out, over scheduled and tend to their own needs last. Thanks for the tip on the NAA support group. I will look into that.
