Welcome to ASD Friendly

ASD Friendly is a close-knit community of parents and carers of people with Autism and Asperger's Syndrome. Established in April 2003, ASD Friendly brings us together to share tips, vent frustrations and generally have a laugh about things that other people would never understand. We know that caring for a disabled child is difficult and rewarding; it's good to know that we don't need to do it all alone.

Wondering where to start? Drop in and say hello on our friendly forums - the best part of the site is being able to make firm friends with people who really do know what it's like. Before you know it, you'll be gossiping in the chatroom and meeting up in real life!

ASD Friendly is run by parents for parents. No-one knows what you are going through like we do.

What does ASDfriendly mean to me?

To be able to talk to friends and not be judged, to be able to say whatever and they're not shocked. I really wanted to help other families not go through what I did with my aspergers son and to talk to other families about what to do, what to avoid, not to take this that or the other with my youngest autistic son. And to be there for others when they feel battered and flung through the wringer.

I have made some really special unique friends and I can't imagine a day without them now. They make me laugh so much with a few words, or cry when things get really bad and I just want to run to them and just give them a cuddle. Because of ASDf, I don't feel alone anymore.
