The Autistic Cooperative | International
The Autistic Cooperative was created to network Advocacy groups and individual Advocates from all over the world working on the goal of Autistic human and civil rights.
The Autistic Cooperative does not exist to replace any regional or national Advocacy groups, but to provide a hub through which those groups can network, and solo advocates can connect.
Autism Inclusivity | International
This is an autistic-led Facebook group for parents and carers of autistic children/teens/adults.
We wish to support you and we accept that parents with loved one’s who have challenging behaviours, who bolt and have little to no communication feel ostracized by the autistic community.
This group seeks to help support and educate and above all accept.
Autistic Allies | International
This Facebook group welcomes Autistics, and their NT Allies and Parents of Autistics.
We are not a support group, but we have a sister group that is. The focus of this group is to introduce parents to a neurodiversity perspective.
From this perspective, any talk of ‘curing’ or ‘getting rid’ of autism is not only disrespectful, but ludicrous. This group is against ANY form of ABA, no matter how ‘nice’ seeming it may be, and supports the many survivors who have had the therapy inflicted on them. We firmly believe that the support Autistic adults can give parents is of huge benefit to their families.
Unfortunately most people are unaware of this potential help. This group is determined to educate through posts and discussions and encourages members to share these views elsewhere. This is a summary of the most important rules, you will be expected to read the full version in the pinned post if allowed to join.
Neuroclastic | International
NeuroClastic, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
The publication provides a sounding board for Autistic voices who are re-writing everything you thought you knew about the autistic spectrum.
The primary purpose is to document the autistic experience through the lens and work of autistic individuals. For this reason, we primarily accept autistic contributors.
At times, we will feature a parent, carer, advocate, activist, ally, professional, or a non-autistic neurodivergent person who has unique insight.
Therapist Neurodiversity Collective | International
An international collective of licensed and/or credentialed therapists who believe that neurological differences are to be recognized and respected as any other human variation. We practice empathetic and respectful, ABA-free Therapy.
Therapist Neurodiversity Collective’s mission is to provide free public access to trauma-informed, neurodiversity paradigm aligned therapists, to advocate with our therapists and the neurodivergent and disabled populations we serve, and to provide education for therapy practices and methodologies which presume competence, are non-trauma inducing and which respect human rights, dignity, and sensory preferences.
Autistic Self-Advocacy Network | USA
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism.
ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which autistic people enjoy equal access, rights, and opportunities. We work to empower autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community, and seek to organize the autistic community to ensure our voices are heard in the national conversation about us.
Nothing About Us, Without Us!
Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network | USA
AWN is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization with a mission to provide community, support and resources for Autistic women, girls, transfeminine and transmasculine nonbinary and genderqueer people, trans people of all genders, Two Spirit people, and all others of marginalized genders.
Neurodivergent Liberation Coalition | USA
Neurodiversity is a liberation movement.
Our mission is to join forces for an intersectional self-advocacy movement for neurodivergent people to break down barriers caused by a world built around neurotypicality.
Nothing about us without us.
Autistic UK | UK
Our network is firmly based in the philosophies of peer to peer support and inclusion. We believe that autistic adults should have choice, the opportunity to make their own decisions, and be equipped with the tools to enable them to achieve their aspirations in life.
We believe there should be nothing about us without us, and encourage our associates to develop the skills needed to successfully self-advocate.
We have no preconceptions of our network associates as we understand that everyone is unique.
