"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."-T.S. Eliot
Could Autism Spectrum people maintain the most positive aspects of our characters(Intellect, Honesty, Morality, Creativity, etc.) yet simultaneously alleviate the challenges that can turn our lives into an unbearable existence(Keeping track of time, Communicating with or even merely facing other human beings, Organizing our personal papers, etc.)?
The above question is one of the foundations for the key goal of Adult Aspies of San Francisco: To provide a safe and secure place where Autism Spectrum people are encouraged to emotionally, socially and professionally navigate through everyday life yet also maintain an individual identity.
Our primary request at our meetings is that you do not cause harm and disrupt the proceedings. We also respect and acknowledge the personal dignity, boundaries and space of our group members.
We are making a conscious and serious effort to make sure that all attendees feel safe, secure and welcome.
Although it is only one planet in a neverending universe, the Earth is still "a big place." Let's "put all of our heads together" and find the most positive, constructive and efficient means by which we can improve all of our lives on this "3rd Rock from the Sun." :-)
