PEI Autistic Adults is a peer support group of autistic adults and autistic seniors who engage with each other online and/or in-person to talk about autism, share experiences of navigating PEI as autistic adults, and be supportive to each other. Self-diagnosed is fine.

Research indicates autistic people are like everyone else: we find it easier to connect and form friendships with people who think and communicate like we do. We should all be able to find our find friends or companions or even acquaintances who will accept us for who we are.

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 acceptance and consideration from the wider community in PEI.
Our mandate is to make a positive difference in the lives of Autistic Adults and Autistic Seniors, improving their wellbeing and quality of life here on PEI.

The autistic support on PEI seems to be directed towards parents of autistic children and leaves out autistic adults and seniors. That's a big gap since autism is a life long condition.

There's strength in numbers and there should be Nothing about us without us. I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist, or any kind of health professional and neither the group or the website are affiliated with any organization. The support would be peer support from other autistic people.
