"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."-T.S. Eliot
As Autism Spectrum people, we should not have to change ourselves.
Our uniqueness is what makes us great.
And we have our intellect.
And we have our honesty.
And we have our morality.
And we have our creativity.
Why shouldn’t AS people be able to maintain these positive and valuable traits and simultaneously pursue efforts to overcome potential challenges that could be interfering with our ability to enjoy life( Related to making friends, being able to converse with people, dealing with troublesome coworkers, etc.)?
The above question is a foundation for the primary 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 disrupt the proceedings.
Please note: Group members have an obligation to respect and acknowledge each other’s personal space, boundaries, and dignity.
We are making a conscious and serious effort to ensure that all attendees feel safe, secure, and welcome.
