Tom Smith, List Owner
To discuss autism issues among UK residents or issues that are specific to the UK e.g. education legislation, social services, where to go for help, availability of therapies etc. In this context 'autism' should be taken to mean any autistic continuum disorder (including PDD and Asperger Syndrome). The list has no official connection with any organisation. We hope that members will be able to provide encouragement and support to one another, to give information about services in the UK, to help spread internet use among the autism community in the UK. Additionally it can provide a forum to discuss ideas on longer-term resources on the Internet in the UK e.g. newsgroup, more specialised mailing lists.
If you would like a place to discuss the challenges of raising an autistic or AS child without the emphasis on forcing normality, this may be what you are looking for.
The goal of this online church is not to criticize conventional churches. It is to be realistic about the significant problems facing autistics who want Christian fellowship but for one reason or another can't seem to achieve it. This church is meant to be a nondenominational church for autistic Christians who believe that the Bible is the Word of God. My hope is that this church will be a safe haven for autistic Christians, either as a sole church for those who are currently not attending church, or as a supplement to the church that they already belong to. This is to be a place of fellowship, support, prayer, and Christian love for God's autistic people.
This list/group is for people on the spectrum only, not for normal parents of autistic children.
This is a discussion/support list for: autistic people with autistic partners; autistic people with non-autistic partners; non-autistic people with autistic partners; autistic people who are single parents.
