Autistic's United helps you connect and share with the people in your life.
Please note I've made these guidelines to ensure that our group continues to run smoothly:

1) We will interact with each other in a civil manner at all times.

2) We ask our members not to openly flirt with one another during group discussion meetings. We are a casual meet-up group, but we don't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Feel free to flirt during our other group activities, just not during our group discussion meetings.

3) This group is accepting of any adult on the autism spectrum, including those who have not been officially diagnosed; however, we are not qualified to give a diagnosis. It is up to the individual to seek a diagnosis.

4) Supportive family members or friends are welcome to attend any of our group activities, events, or parties; however, they may only accompany you for support to your first group discussion meeting. After that, your guest will need to wait outside.

5) Please, no gossiping. What people do in their private time is their own business, not ours.

6) We are not a political, religious, or social ethical debate group. We want to keep the main focus on autism, and all we have in common, rather than highlighting our differences. If discussions turn into disrespectful debates, the group leader will change topics.

7) We want to hear any problems, criticisms, or complaints you might have so we can resolve them and move on - we want you to enjoy your time in the group. We just ask that complaints and concerns be discussed directly and honestly with group organizers in person, by email, or by phone. Please avoid venting frustrations through gossip or on social media to maintain the integrity of our group.

8) We are very accepting and non-judgmental group, however if we decide your behavior is inappropriate at this time, we will ask you to leave the group for a short period of typically 3 weeks to a month. This matter will be addressed and resolved privately and confidentially.

9) Group leader, Danny Landry, has the authority to remove any member for any reason deemed damaging to the group at any time.

I want everyone to feel free to express themselves openly. We live in a country in which we are allowed to have different beliefs and different opinions. Please understand that this can sometimes be a double-edged sword - such freedom and power, while invaluable, must be wielded wisely and carefully.

There will be times in group discussions when we will have differences in opinion. Disagreements happen no matter where you are or what kind of people you are with. So I just ask that whenever this happens we can learn to agree to disagree and focus on the things we have in common.

No one with or without autism is perfect. As the lead organizer i make mistakes all the time. So, please let’s not be overly critical of ourselves and/or each other. A little trust, patience, understanding and forgiveness can go a long way. I just ask you be mindful of these simple guidelines.

My sincere thanks to all of you! I am very excited for our group and look forward to many more meet-ups to come!
