Anyway long story short, I was diagnosed with ASD two weeks ago. I have been looking around for support or social groups targeting people with ASD that are not low functioning. I could find only found one in my area (west sussex). The only problem there is that they have no (vacancies) for new members whatever that means. Im due to start uni in September i know there are a few groups for autistic folk there but in the mean time are there really no social groups or support out there????
i am kind of lucky in a sense that i have a social network but is that it... do people on there own with nobody have nothing?
I've just done a quick search on the Autism Services Directory and have found 2 possible groups that might be of interest to you:
Aut-Hazelmere: http://www.autangel.org.uk. They also have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/authaslemere.
Thanks Kerry, Hazelmere is a bit far from me. im on the Sussex coast. il will check out the aspire surrey one depending on the distance.
