It always feels better to be around people that completely understand what you go through.

My daughter has made her career in finding out how the autistic brain thinks and my nephew has Aspergers, which is on the spectrum. But I think that that this was an interesting aspect of the syndrome. That women get autism too, and that many adults are out there on the spectrum and don't know that they are. Places like this could really help them. No one should go it alone.

Great story, thanks Perrie.

We really have so little information about Autism. I am still continually amazed at those I know who are on the spectrum; the perceptions that many on the Spectrum experience, are still complete unknowns.
