Do you have AS or are you a high-functioning autistic? While everyone's different, you feel really different, but can't put your finger on it. Ya we know how that is.

Each month we schedule a couple get-togethers in different places around LA. Want to belong and be normal for once? Wouldn't it be nice to meet people and not get that awful feeling? Here's your chance. When you are with us you are "normal" and you do belong. It takes a while to get used to being 'okay' after a lifetime of being on the outside. We provide a fun, pressure-less social environment where you are accepted just as you are. For a couple hours you can just be yourself, do what you do, say what you say and not have to worry or feel bad. Even if we did notice we wouldn't care because we have the same thing you do. Man I love that, it's just magical!

Look, you are different true, but in a really cool way, and we will like you. Come on, join us. You don't have to be alone anymore. It'll be fun.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
