A commitment that has lasted nine years.

Asperger Pride was born by passion and need of disclosing the correct information about the autistic spectrum condition. During these years the organisation have seen many changes and even if it is not locally operational anymore, it keeps working to raise awareness offering support through web and social media. The contribution that Asperger Pride has left to the history of autism in Italy remains a precious heritage and still useful to the most.

Asperger’s syndrome is a form of autism without intellectual disability. Non-autistic people at a first glance might think that people with Asperger’s syndrome needn’t any support and they are just odd, lazy or rude. It is considered a form of invisible autism but this does not make it less difficult for whom lives it from within.
The term neurodiversity indicates a neurological differentiation in processing information. This may explain conditions as autism, but also personality disorders, bipolar disorders and schizophrenia. Many people with autism find identification in their condition and call themselves neurodivergents. Instead, they define non-autistic people as neurotypical.
Self-advocacy is the first-person defense of one’s rights. People with disabilities have the right to take control of their own life, speaking for themselves, always being able to ask for the support of others. People with disabilities have the right to make decisions about their lives without the influence or excessive control of others.
