We are the first Italian self advocacy organisation.
Asperger Pride Italy was established in 2011 by three autistic people and it was the first example of self advocacy organisation in Italy.
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.
