Why not lend them support by “hopping on the spectrum”, joining the group, and becoming an ally with those just like you on the other end.  The mission is a simple one: Create a friendly community for teens with Autism. It’s senseless that people with certain gifts are viewed as anything less than the norm. We hope to change this.”
