Welcome to the new forum.
Because we have an increasing number of adults on the spectrum joining the forum (with and without a formal diagnosis) as well as a growing number of parents of older teens and adults, it's been suggested that we start a new subforum where topics of particular interest to these members could find a home.
So here it is!
Topics posted here could include: adult relationships, jobs, later diagnosis, further and higher education, benefits, independent living, and many more: if they are of particular relevance to people over the age of 16, they would fit here. At the moment, these topics end up in different parts of the forum and tend to get lost. Hopefully if they are all together in one place, people will be able to find information and help more easily and quickly, especially new members and guests. Information and links which are particularly relevant and useful can be pinned at the top here, and some existing threads in other parts of the forum can be moved here.
We all need time to try it out and get used to it, but we hope you like the new forum and that it works for you - let us know if there are any problems. We hope everyone will visit it and not see it as a separate area just for adults - every one at some point in our lives will have an interest in adult issues!
Please tell us what you think, and what information you would like to see pinned here. You can post feedback and questions on this thread or you can send a pm to one of us if you prefer.
Over to you!
on behalf of the moderating team.
