To help make everyone's experience positive and safe we have a number of important rules for using the Community.
You can choose a forum name in your profile (more details). Until you do, we will use a temporary name, such as NAS12345. Your name should not relate to your real identity, and so is different from your sign-in username.
Unless you choose otherwise, the system will tell you about new replies in threads to which you have contributed. It can send you emails and/or use browser notifications. You can change the notifications you receive by signing in and then using your settings.
The Community is our discussion forum for autistic people, their families and other wider network. It allows you to meet online and share your thoughts and experiences. It’s free to join and a great way to share support. Please check the rules before posting - including why we cannot accept research and survey postings.
