WELCOME TO PEI AUTISTIC ADULTS

Please scroll down to Join and Make a Connection

WHAT IS PEI AUTISTIC ADULTS?

PEI Autistic Adults is a community or peer support group of autistic adults including autistic seniors. Like everyone else, autistic people are more comfortable in the company of their peers. We find it easier to understand, communicate, and bond with other autistic people who will accept us for who we are. If you're autistic, why not join us?

Our mission is to be a community of Autistic Adults on PEI through peer support, lived experience and knowledge sharing.
Our vision is to celebrate and promote the positive aspects of autism while advocating for acceptance and consideration from the wider community on PEI.

 

We invite you to explore the website and take the chance to reach out to your peers and make a connection. We're looking forward to meeting you!

We have a public blog where members can publish, a members-only discussion forum, and links to our social media. There's also a members-only area where members can create profiles, follow and chat with each other, and upload pictures and other media. Some of our members like to chat online, some like to discuss issues in the forum, some only like to attend meetings, and some enjoy connecting in multiple ways.

I wanted lots of options for people to communicate comfortably as per their own choice. As the saying goes ‘If you’ve met one autistic person, you’ve met one autistic person’ meaning we’re not all the same.  Members are welcome to participate in whatever aspects they like whether it be posting in the forum, chatting, going to meetings or posting to the public blog to share their ideas with the world.

So how about you?  Would you like to connect with your peers?

  • If you'd like to participate in any of the activities mentioned above, please join our group and you can start by creating your profile and following the other members.

  • If you're interested in attending events or activities with other like-minded individuals please create a post in the Welcome to the Discussion section of the Forum to which others can respond.

  • If you'd like to try writing a blog or sharing your thoughts on an article about autism that someone else has written, after joining please respond to the post in the General Info section of the Forum indicating your interest.

If you'd like to participate in the in-person activities/meetings but don't wish to interact online please send an email to peiautisticadults@gmail.com with your preferences.

I hope to eventually have a telephone contact if I can find a member who would like to do that for the group.

Click the Twitter icon to access our neglected Twitter account. If you join, maybe you could run our Twitter account for us.


All members are welcome to participate in whatever aspects you'd like depending on your time and interest. I'm hoping everyone will be able to find like-minded individuals to share interests, discuss issues, attend events, etc.

 

Please note the support would be peer support from other autistic people just like you. We are not health professionals of any kind and neither the group nor the website are affiliated with any organization.  

Join now and help shape the community.
