What is ? (Autism Inclusion Matters)
AIM is a group on the Isle of Wight for adults (over 18) who have Autism or Aspergers, also known as an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). It is not a group for parents or carers, or professionals.
AIM is a user lead group. This means that with support, people who have ASD will decide what happens in the group and help to run the groups.
How can I be involved?
We run 2 social groups aimed at helping people who have ASD who may feel lonely, or find it difficult to meet people and make friends. The social groups are for people who have ‘high functioning Autism’ or Aspergers syndrome.
One meets at a local community hall, and also includes a support group.
We will support members to find people who have shared interests, and build friendships.
The group has become run by its members and we encourage anyone who wants to help in any way to run the group to let us know.
One group goes out doing activities in the community. We have a range of activities that are chosen by members.
AIM social groups are free to attend. You only pay for the cost of the activity. We do not provide any support workers or carers, however there are volunteer supporters and a group advocate to assist with social difficulties and anxiety.
