Triple A (Autism Awareness Association) is a group of young people with autism who run their own charitable organisation as the Board. The group aims to provide peer support to people with autism via social groups and an online forum. The social groups are based in Aberdeen but the forum is available to everyone who can access the internet.
They would like to invite you to take a look and register. There are discussions about autism, reviews of films, sports and current affairs. You could get involved in the word association game or check out links to member’s creative projects.
The forum is an excellent way to get to know the Triple A members and post questions to find out more. It can sometimes be a bit daunting meeting new people in a new setting so the group thought it would be useful to create an online space to meet in the comfort of your own home at a time most convenient to you. Some of the new members have found the forum a great way to get to know other people in the groups and see what they like to discuss. Other members that cannot come to meetings regularly, stay in contact through the forum.
Everyone at Triple A knows what it feels like to be lonely, upset or confused. They got the support they needed from each other and now want to help others.
