Some of the posting rules include:
- No mention of functioning labels–High or Low Functioning Autistic–are permitted in this group. Autism is a spectrum and Functioning Labels are not an accurate reflection of this and are harmful to the community.
- Aspergers has been removed from most medical diagnostic systems, and the condition has been rolled into Autism Spectrum Disorder. It also carries significant negative implications. As a result, the use of the term is also not permitted. No using things like A$perg*rs to dodge this.
- Add… (TW) ([Topic of trigger]) . . . …to the beginning of any post that is likely to cause distress to others.
- No selling or advertising.
