I decided to start this group so that people with autism spectrum disorder in the Nanaimo Regional District might be able to better connect with each other. Recently, I've decided to expand the scope to include the Central Vancouver Island area because there doesn't seem to be any support in other communities. The purpose of this group is to help provide support and friendship through peer relationships and self-advocacy. Anyone may join this group but the primary goal is to interconnect adults on the spectrum and the people in their lives.
