Are there online groups for autism?

Question:Hi. I have just begun to get on the computer and someone mentioned me trying to find an online group for a young man with autism. Would appreciate and links or any information. Thanks!

If this young man has Aspergers' Syndrome (or otherwise, is generally high-functioning), then try AspieVillage (

AspieVillage was created by, and is ran by, people with Aspergers' Syndrome, as opposed to all of the other 'support' websites, ran by 'professionals'.

The website covers several areas, such as communication with 'normal people ('NT's)', dealing with social issues, as well as intellectual puzzles and debates
I don't think so but I do know that there are conventions for Autism. That would I believe be your best bet. I have high functioning autism.
Here are a couple of suggestions. Hope these help.
