Autism and/or Asperger's Syndrome

A group for people with autism, who support someone with autism or who are just interested in the condition.

If you have autism don't be worried about the social issues of saying something wrong or not fittiing in, you will be fine, just say what you think smile001.gif

We need a group for Aspergers only, No family or others, just those with Aspergers. Many of us have been badly treated by family and friends.
