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?

 Knowing others will listen and not judge. Realising you do not have to go through the challenges ASDs have brought us, on your own. Rejoicing in the acheivements that occur in life, no matter how small. Even when there is no personal experience of what another is going through, there is empathy. It is how I want myself and my children to be treated, and treat others in return.
