Autistic & Divergent Organizations, Networks & Groups

International

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.

The Autistic Cooperative follows the Ten Principals of the Âutistic ûnion and also the Autistic Charter or Rights.

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.

The Âûtistic Union | International

Welcome home to Âutistic ûnion. Everyone is welcome here as family, whether on the spectrum or those that support those that are.

What does the Âû after my name mean?

Facebook


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.

Autistic Self-Advocacy Network | USA

Autistic Self Advocacy Network

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!

UK

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.
