Community description:
This community is, insofar as is possible, a clone of the LiveJournal Asperger community.

This is a support community for people with Asperger Syndrome, or who are elsewhere on the Autistic Spectrum, or who are interested in self-diagnosing. Membership is moderated in order that the community be a safe place for Autistics to discuss our difficulties in dealing with the cognitive majority, but the moderators work from a strong presumption of acceptance. If you apply for membership and there's a good reason to reject you, you'll be rejected. If you have a null profile and an empty or invisible journal, your application will expire after thirty days. Otherwise you'll probably be accepted.

This is most emphatically NOT a support group for parents, siblings or spouses of Autistics. There are enough support groups like that already, and you're not welcome to come in here and berate us for being Autistic or to vent your frustrations to this community. That doesn't mean that neurotypicals can't join and participate. Friendly neurotypicals are indeed welcome. What we don't want is to be told what monsters we are, and how difficult it is to deal with an Autistic.

Book list, for Aspies and other interested parties.

Autistics.org is excellent for telling the truth.

Making drastic edits to the content of your posts, particularly after they have collected a number of comments, is frowned upon here. So is deleting other people's comments on your posts. Doing either may warrant warnings and, beyond that, banning from the community.

We'd also prefer that you not use non-standard fonts or colors or distractingly animated or grotesque LJ icons in your posts, as many of us have visual processing issues which render such posts extremely difficult to read. However, we won't take any sort of action against you if you do.
